Opposite associations of osteoprotegerin and ZBTB40 polymorphisms with bone mineral density of the hip in postmenopausal Taiwanese women.


BACKGROUND An elevated annual incidence rate of hip fracture has been reported among elderly Taiwanese. Moreover, bone mineral density (BMD) is the single most reliable predictor of fragility fractures. We aimed to identify the association between gene sequence variants and hip BMD in postmenopausal Taiwanese women. METHODS We prospectively analyzed data… (More)
