In order to analyze the role of the estrogen receptor (ER) gene allelic polymorphisms on bone mineral density (BMD), 173 pre- and postmenopausal women were divided into four groups according to their menstrual status (group A: premenopausal women; group B: late premenopausal women; group C: postmenopausal women who had menopause for 5 years or less; and group D: postmenopausal women who had menopause for more than 5 years), and the relationship between ER gene polymorphism and lumbar spine BMD… CONTINUE READING
