Abstract

The Wnt signalling pathway is the target of current anabolic therapies for osteoporosis. Studies in 2018 have revealed more about endogenous control of Wnt-related signalling, including mechanisms of natural Wnt inhibition and new anabolic signalling pathways that could be harnessed to overcome the challenges posed by current therapies.
