Identification of an Epigenetic Signature of Osteoporosis in Blood DNA of Postmenopausal Women.

Epiterapia co-authored the paper, published in The Journal of Bone and Mineral Research which is among the highest-ranked journals in the field.

We demonstrated for the first time, that a polygenic DNA methylation score of five candidate genes in the blood can predict osteoporosis at an early stage with high sensitivity and specificity and can be used to measure the bone density.
