North West Remains a Hotspot for Paget's

The North West Remains a Hotspot for Paget's Disease 

Recently published research supported by the Paget’s Association has shown that the North West of England remains a hotspot for Paget’s Disease of Bone. Paget’s disease is a debilitating and underdiagnosed condition involving excessive breakdown and formation of bone, resulting in weakened bones, and often pain and deformity. The disease is thought to be caused by a combination of both genetic and environmental factors, but how the local environment is involved has remained a mystery.
