We want to draw your attention to the latest publication in cooperation with TAmiRNA. The study identifies a novel and unexpected role of miR‐146a in bone homeostasis. miR‐146a increases with age and acts as an epigenetic molecular switch terminating bone accrual, leading to bone loss during aging by downregulating bone anabolic Wnt signaling. Conversely, loss of miR‐146a leads to continuous bone accrual during aging as a result of unrestricted bone anabolism and intact Wnt signaling. Therefore, miR‐146a crucially controls the temporal facet of bone homeostasis. "microRNA-146a controls age-related bone loss" Saferding V, Hofmann M, Brunner JS, et al.

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. Take the chance and download this paper by clicking here

We would like to draw your attention to our lastest publication: “Cost-utility analysis of fracture risk assessment using microRNA compared with Standard Tools and no Monitoring in the Austrian female Population.” Bone. Volume 108, 2018; Pages 44-54. This study presents the first comprehensive attempt to model the cost-effectiveness of circulating microRNAs for bone fracture risk assessment in a central European female post-menopausal population in comparison to DXA and FRAX®. The results demonstrate that the osteomiR™ test can be a cost-effective alternative to established risk assessment strategies. Click here to read the study
