The OPG/RANKL/RANK system is important in the balance between bone formation and resorption. We used primary human osteoblasts (hOBs) cells to examine the impact of 17-beta-estradiol (E2) or/and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25D) in OPG/RANKL system in 28 post-menopausal (PM) women; (a) with hip fracture (OP) or (b) with osteoarthritis (OA). The hOB from OP(More)
BACKGROUND Osteoporosis is a metabolic disorder characterized by a reduction in bone mass and deterioration in the microarchitectural structure of the bone, leading to a higher risk for spontaneous and fragility fractures.The main aim was to study the differences between human bone from osteoporotic and osteoarthritic patients about gene expression(More)
BACKGROUND A prospective study was performed to compare the prevalence of morphometric vertebral fractures (MVF) between patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and healthy subjects and to identify predictive factors of fracture. METHODS A total of 107 patients with IBD (53 with Crohn's disease and 54 with ulcerative colitis) and 51 healthy(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with an increased risk of osteoporotic fracture. Several factors have been identified as being potentially responsible for this risk, such as alterations in bone remodelling that may have been induced by changes in circulating glucose or/and by the presence of non-oxidative end products of(More)
