Abstract.

Are you prey to information overload? Do you wonder how you can determine what is useful for your purposes? Do you wonder about the relevance of some articles to your particular discipline? Nowadays, the explosion of information presents problems, perhaps nowhere as significantly as in the fields of the theoretical and applied sciences. Perhaps you are a clinician, an expert in the pathology of and injuries to the musculoskeletal system, needing to keep your clinical practice up to date with relevant new information. Assuming that your interest lies in the clinical application of ideas, Calcified Tissue International can help you resolve any confusion by focusing on modern topics that are of major clinical relevance, for example, improvement of the mechanical properties of the bone, especially in metabolic bone diseases, fracture healing enhancement, bone biological responses at the bone implant interface, musculoskeletal system interactions, the genetic bases of orthopedic disorders, and the possible orthopedic applications of gene therapy.

Key words: Mechanical bone properties — Osteoporosis — Musculoskeletal system — Arthroplasty — Fractures.
