The paper ‘Differing impact of clinical factors on the risk of fracture in younger and older women in the general population and an osteoporosis clinic population, co-authored by Quantify’s Rosa Lauppe, Gustaf Ortsäter and Oskar Ström has been published in Archives of Osteoporosis.

This study assesses the impact of classical risk factors for fracture in women aged 80+ and 60–79. The results suggest that risk assessment which fits younger women may not be suited for the 80+ strata as many common risk factors are less predictive in the older compared to the younger cohort.
