Effect of vitamin K on bone mineral density and fractures in adults: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials
Conclusions For post-menopausal or osteoporotic patients, there is no evidence that vitamin K affects bone mineral density or vertebral fractures; it may reduce clinical fractures; however, the evidence is insufficient to confirm this. There are too few trials to draw conclusions for other patient groups. (Source: Osteoporosis International)

Parathyroid suppression therapy normalizes chronic kidney disease-induced elevations in cortical bone vascular perfusion: a pilot study
AbstractSummaryInterventions that alter PTH levels in an animal model of chronic kidney disease have effects on the perfusion of bone and bone marrow.IntroductionPatients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have accelerated bone loss, vascular calcification, and abnormal biochemistries, together contributing to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and fracture-associated mortality. Despite evidence of vascular pathologies and dysfunction in CKD, our group has shown that cortical bone tissue perfusion is higher in a rat model of high-turnover CKD. The goal of the present study was to test the hypothesis that parathyroi...

Prognostic factors of in-hospital complications after hip fracture surgery: a scoping review
Conclusions: Most factors were reported by one study with no proposed underlying mechanism for their influence. Where reported by more than one study, there was inconsistency in reported associations and the conceptualization of complications differed, limiting comparison across studies. It is therefore not possible to be certain whether intervening on these factors would reduce the rate of complications after hip fracture surgery. (Source: Osteoporosis International)

Integrating transcriptome-wide association study and mRNA expression profiling identifies novel genes associated with bone mineral density
AbstractSummaryTo scan novel candidate genes associated with osteoporosis, a two-stage transcriptome-wide association study (TWAS) of bone mineral density (BMD) was conducted. The BMD-associated genes identified by TWAS were then compared with the gene expression profiling of BMD in bone cells, B cells, and mesenchymal stem cells. We identified multiple candidate genes and gene ontology (GO) terms associated with BMD.IntroductionOsteoporosis (OP) is a metabolic bone disease characterized by decrease in BMD. Our objective is to scan novel candidate genes associated with OP.MethodsA transcriptome-wide association study (TWAS...
