Information about Paget?s disease of bone has been added to NIHSeniorHealth. The website is a joint effort of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM), which are part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

?The good news is that Paget?s disease of bone is treatable, especially if it is diagnosed early,? says Stephen I. Katz, MD, PhD,director of the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), which developed the content for the Paget?s disease topic on NIHSeniorHealth. ?Information about diagnosis and treatment that can stop or slow the disease's progression is easily accessible on NIHSeniorHealth.?

NIHSeniorHealth, which is based on the latest research on cognition and aging, features short, easy-to-read segments of information in a variety of formats, including large-print type sizes, open-captioned videos and even an audio version. Additional topics coming soon to the site include clinical trials, nutrition and falls. The site links to MedlinePlus.
