This fascinating issue of JLPM provides insights in novel clinical and analytical aspects of bone with a special focus on intersystem diseases. The review articles on the following pages will help to create awareness for the interactions between bone and other organs these. Furthermore, they will provide an overview about the capabilities of novel and established biomarkers. It can be expected that future research will help to transfer this knowledge in clinical practice.
