OBJECTIVE We investigated changes in serum concentration of undercarboxylated osteocalcin (ucOC), which is a sensitive marker of vitamin K status, and association of ucOC concentration with estradiol concentration in pre-, peri- and early post-menopausal women. METHODS The study population consisted of 193 pre-, peri- and post-menopausal Japanese women aged 39-66 yr. Serum ucOC concentration was measured to assess vitamin K status; serum concentrations of intact osteocalcin (OC) and bone… CONTINUE READING
