UNLABELLED A number of polymorphisms in various genes have been identified and associated with bone mineral density (BMD) and with an increased risk of osteoporosis. OBJECTIVE In this study, three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the TNFRSF11B gene were studied for association with an increased risk of osteoporosis in postmenopausal Maltese women (n=126). METHODOLOGY Analysis was performed by PCR restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) while BMD at the lumbar spine… CONTINUE READING
