Objective: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients demonstrate an increased risk of osteoporosis and fractures. The pathophysiology of HIV-induced bone loss is complex and remains largely unknown. Recent studies have identified a molecular signature of small non-coding RNAs (microRNAS) in patients with osteoporosis, but data are lacking in HIV-infected patients. The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression profile of microRNAs related to bone met...
