THE PRISM STUDY

The PRISM study (Paget’s disease, Randomised trial of Intensive versus Symptomatic Management) was carried out by an Edinburgh research team, supported by a research grant from the Association. This looked at newly identified genes to see if it would be possible to predict the severity, complications or response to treatment in people with Paget’s disease.

MOLECULAR TESTING COULD PROVIDE EARLIER DIAGNOSIS OF RARE CANCER

Bone cancer associated with Paget’s Disease of Bone

Dr Darrell Green, from Norwich, was the recipient of the Allan Reid Student Research Bursary to pursue exciting research into a rare bone cancer (osteosarcoma) associated with Paget’s Disease of Bone.

SCIENTISTS SOLVE AN 800 YEAR OLD MYSTERY RELATED TO PAGET’S DISEASE

Scientists Solve an 800-year-old Mystery Related to Paget’s Disease

Funding from the Paget’s Association has helped scientists solve an 800-year-old mystery related to Paget’s Disease of Bone. Scientific research at the molecular level, on a collection of medieval skeletons from Norton Priory in Cheshire, could help rewrite history after revealing they were affected by an unusual ancient form of the disorder.
