Bisphosphonate treatment reduces fracture risk in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis. However, some patients have an inadequate response to treatment. Estradiol and sclerostin play an important role in bone metabolism. Sclerostin is an endogenous inhibitor of osteoblastic activity and estrogen deficiency increases osteoclast activity and bone resorption.We examined the influence of both measures on fracture incidence in postmenopausal osteoporosis in...

Biogenesis and function of microRNAs can be influenced by genetic variants in the pri-miRNA sequences leading to phenotype variability. The aim of this study was to identify osteoporosis-related SNPs by affecting the expression levels of mature microRNAs.The first approach was to perform an association analysis of putative functional SNPs located in pri-miRNA sequences of bone-related microRNAs with the lumbar spine and femoral neck (FN) bone mineral den...
