ABSTRACT
The article discusses a review by the Scientific Advisory Council of Osteoporosis Canada which concluded that treatment with parathyroid hormone could be effective for osteoporosis. Parathyroid hormone is produced by black bears after hibernation to overcome bone loss generated by several months of hibernating. The hormone was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of osteoporosis.
