Osteoimmunology is a research field that investigates interactions between bone and immune system. In the light of this new discipline, osteoporosis is acually considered a chronic age-related immune mediated disease. Bone and immune cells are strictly interconnected through a complex network of receptor pathways and cytokines, which in the whole constitute the immunoskeletal interface. Moreover, the cross-talk between immune and bone cells is also involved in the regulation of important body functions beyond bone remodeling and takes part in various pathological conditions sharing an inflammatory background.
