Poor Trabecular Microarchitecture at the Distal Radius in Older Men with Increased Concentration of High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein—The Strambo Study

Abstract

Low-grade inflammation, assessed by serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) concentration, is associated with higher fracture risk irrespective of areal bone mineral density (aBMD). We assessed the association of hsCRP with bone microarchitecture (measured by high-resolution pQCT) at the distal radius and tibia in 1,149 men, aged 19–87 years… (More)
