Osteoporosis is easily overlooked in male patients, especially in the field of rheumatic diseases mostly prevalent with female patients, and its link to pathogenesis is still lacking. Attenuated monocyte apoptosis from a transcriptome-wide expression study illustrates the role of monocytes in osteoporosis. This study tested the hypothesis that the monocyte percentage among leukocytes could be a biomarker of osteoporosis in rheumatic diseases. Eighty-seven males with rheumatic diseases were…

A correlative studies between osteoporosis and blood cell composition
Abstract Osteoporosis is defined as a metabolic skeletal disease characterized by a decrease of the bone mass per unit volume, caused by a variety of reasons. Increasing evidence indicate that the
Integrative Analyses of Genes Associated With Osteoporosis in CD16+ Monocyte
A miRNA-mRNA network was constructed with the nine key genes and 12 miRNAs, which were involved in osteoporosis, which could provide a novel insight into osteopOrosis.

Attenuated Monocyte Apoptosis, a New Mechanism for Osteoporosis Suggested by a Transcriptome-Wide Expression Study of Monocytes
This study for the first time suggested a decreased apoptosis rate of monocytes, an important osteoclastogenic cell, as a novel mechanism for osteoporosis.
Male osteoporosis.
Male osteoporosis is still underdiagnosed and further studies are required to clarify the pathogenesis and find out the right therapy and Prevention and early diagnosis are, nowadays, the best ways of treatment.
Platelet vitamin D receptor is reduced in osteoporotic patients.
The lower VDR expression in osteoporotic could indicate a lower ability to respond to vitamin D, and could be the explanation of the increase in the PTH and decrease in the phosphorus levels in patients with respect to controls.
Peripheral Blood Monocyte-expressed ANXA2 Gene is Involved in Pathogenesis of Osteoporosis in Humans*
Elevated ANXA2 protein expression level, as detected in low BMD subjects, probably stimulates more PBM migration through the blood vessel walls to bone resorption surfaces in vivo, where they differentiate into higher number of osteoclasts and resorb bone at higher rates, thereby decreasing BMD.

The in vivo expression pattern of general cytokines, chemokines, and their receptor genes in human monocytes is explored and it is concluded that the STAT1 gene is important in human circulating monocytes in the etiology of osteoporosis.
Study of bone mineral density in patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
Osteoporosis is a significant complication in ankylosing spondylitis and needs to be monitored and managed at the earliest and rise in BMD in LS spine with duration, is not exclusive for subjects with radiologically evident syndesmophytes.
A Novel Pathophysiological Mechanism for Osteoporosis Suggested by an in Vivo Gene Expression Study of Circulating Monocytes*
A novel pathophysiological mechanism for osteoporosis is suggested that is characterized by increased recruitment of circulating monocyte into bone, enhanced monocyte differentiation into osteoclasts, as well as osteoclast stimulation via monocyte functional changes.
Proteomic analysis of circulating monocytes in Chinese premenopausal females with extremely discordant bone mineral density
A comparative protein expression profiling study of CMCs in Chinese premenopausal females with extremely discordant BMD promotes the understanding of the role of C MCs in BMD determination, and provides an insight into the pathogenesis of human OP.
Monocyte Proteomics Reveals Involvement of Phosphorylated HSP27 in the Pathogenesis of Osteoporosis
This study reveals for the first time a novel link between monocyte HSP27 and BMD, which can result in increased osteoclast formation and thus contribute to pathogenesis of osteoporosis.
Biomarkers of bone turnover in diagnosis and therapy of osteoporosis
Characteristics, preanalytic precautions and applications are presented for selected markers of bone resorption and formation and for parameters regulating bone metabolism for reasonable application in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and therapy monitoring of osteoporosis.
