Abstract
  Background: The Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 gene 4G/5G (PAI-1 4G/5G) polymorphism has been suggestedto be associated with osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) susceptibility; however, the results are conflicting andinconclusive. We have carried out a comprehensive meta-analysis to derive a ...  Read More

Abstract
  Background: Many studies have reported the association of estrogen receptor α gene (ESRα) ESRα PvuII T>C, XbaI A>G and BtgI G>A polymorphisms with Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) risk, but the results remained controversial. In order to drive a more precise estimation, the present ...  Read More
