Dissecting the relationship between high-sensitivity serum C-reactive protein and increased fracture risk: the Rotterdam Study

Abstract

Serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP) is an inflammatory biomarker. We investigated the relationship between CRP and bone health in the Rotterdam Study. Serum high-sensitivity CRP was associated with fracture risk and lower femoral neck bending strength. Mendelian randomization analyses did not yield evidence for this relationship being causal… (More)
