WCO-IOF-ESCEO Krakow 2018

We would like, on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the World Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases (WCO-IOF-ESCEO Krakow 2018), to thank you very much for your tremendous participation to the Congress.
We are very proud to inform you that the 18th edition of the WCO-IOF-ESCEO Congress was a huge success!

3965 delegates took part in the largest event in the field of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, frailty and sarcopenia.
The Scientific Advisory Committee, co-chaired by Professor René Rizzoli and Professor Cyrus Cooper, had an extremely difficult task, to select oral presentations, among 1513 submitted abstracts of the highest quality.
565 Awards were distributed during the congress.
We thank you once again for your much appreciated and active participation during the Congress.

The future edition of the WCO-IOF-ESCEO Congress will be held in 2019 in Paris (France). We are eagerly looking forward to counting you among our privileged participants for this future edition.

"Why Patented Crystalline Glucosamine Sulfate (pCGS) is different from Other Glucosamines in the Treatment of Osteoarthritis (OA) and Should be Recommended as First Line Therapy"
In December 2015, the paper published by Olivier Bruyère, member of the Scientific Advisory Board of ESCEO, in Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism (2014) has benefited from a high visibility in the Asian press: a total of 160 media postings in Thailand, China, Russia and in international outlets with a potential audience of almost 80.000.000 visitors a day.
This is a huge opportunity for ESCEO and for our Osteoarthritis Treatment Algorithm to be seen and read all over the world.
