Xiangxue Xiao and Yingke Xu (both Environmental and Occupational Health and Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine), and Bowen Liu (Math and NIPM) recently published findings in Osteoporosis International, a high-impact peer-reviewed medical journal published by Springer that is an official journal of the International Osteoporosis Foundation and the National Osteoporosis Foundation.

The graduate students’ findings resulted from projects they worked on while enrolled in EAB 788 in spring 2017, a course taught by professor Qing Wu (Environmental and Occupational Health and NIPM) that focuses on logic and application of meta-analysis in public health.

Xiao and Xu published “Thiazide Diuretic Usage and Risk of Fracture: A Meta-Analysis of Cohort Studies” on March 25. Liu published “Depression and Risk of Fracture and Bone Loss: An Updated Meta-Analysis of Prospective Cohort Studies” on March 12.
