Human chitotriosidase (Chit) increases during the osteoclast differentiation and their activity.

Serum chitotriosidase in postmenopausal women with severe osteoporosis

Abstract

Human chitotriosidase (Chit) increases during the osteoclast differentiation and their activity. We demonstrated that serum Chit was significantly higher in osteoporotic subjects than in healthy control ones and revealed a negative correlation between Chit and bone mineral density (BMD). This is the first study showing a correlation between Chit and severe postmenopausal osteoporosis.
