We want to draw your attention to the latest publication of the Department of Oncology and Metabolism, University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, in cooperation with TAmiRNA GmbH, in Bone.

“Serum microRNA as novel biomarkers for osteoporotic vertebral fractures.” Zarecki P, Hackl M, Grillari J, et al. Bone 2019 Oct 24:115105. doi: 10.1016/j.bone.2019.115105.

Specific circulating miRNAs reflect the presence of osteoporotic vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. They are unlikely to reflect low BMD, and more likely changes in bone quality or fracture healing.
