Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease with important genetic factors. We evaluated the frequency of polymorphism 283G/A of the vitamin D3 VDR gene receptor. The study included 800 women at the postmenopausal (505) and reproductive (295) age. Statistically significant changes, depending on the genotype, were shown.(More)
INTRODUCTION Toll-like receptors (TLR) may play a key role in initiating cellular signaling pathways by increasing the levels of inflammatory cytokines which, cooperating with osteoclasts, influence bone turnover Numerous research articles focused on the genetic background of this condition, among others on polymorphic variants in TLR genes. The aim of the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of gene polymorphisms OPG -163A/G, -950T/C and 1181G/C, assessing their relations with the clinical parameters of osseous turnover and the degree of postmenopausal osteoporosis. STUDY DESIGN The study included 800 women of postmenopausal (505) and reproductive (295) age from Poland. The(More)
