Osteocyte apoptosis is the main manifestation of steroid-induced avascular necrosis of the femoral head (SANFH). STAT1 and caspase 3 participate in the process of apoptosis and STAT1 upregulates the expression of caspase 3. We examined the relationship between the STAT1-caspase 3 pathway and apoptosis in SANFH. All specimens were divided into four groups:(More)
