Previous Awareness Days
2021 - Treatment
International Paget's Awareness Day 2021 focused on the important topic of treatment, its history and the research changing how Paget’s disease may be managed in the future. These include video interviews with leading experts, including our Chairman, Professor Stuart Ralston, and Honorary President, Professor Graham Russell.
The videos focus on different areas of treatment, including the importance of the discovery of bisphosphonates for Paget’s disease, and the significance of current and future research into the condition. To see a brief history of how treatment was developed for Paget's disease, click here.
2020 - Ancient Paget's
How could ancient skeletons change the history of disease?
Focusing on the multi-disciplinary Paget’s research at Norton Priory in Runcorn, Cheshire, which has already attracted international interest, this research documentary details exciting research into medieval skeletons. Could this change the way conditions, including Paget’s disease, can be traced through history and therefore open opportunities to change the way we research diseases in the future? If you are interested in looking at the original research paper it can be assessed at the PNAS website
