Wuhan, China. In Medicine (baltimore), Sep 2015
The pooled data showed that there were no significant differences in the percent change of spine BMD (MD1-year = -0.97, 95% CI -2.81 to 0.86, P = 0.30; MD2-year = - 0.57, 95% CI -5.01 to 6.14, P = 0.84), femoral neck BMD (MD1-year = 0.60, 95% CI -0.91 to 2.10, P = 0.44; MD2-year = -0.73, 95% CI -4.97 to 3.51, P = 0.74), the risk of vertebral fracture (risk ratio [RR] = 1.27; 95% CI 0.29-5.57;

Meta-analysis identifies 13 new loci associated with waist-hip ratio and reveals sexual dimorphism in the genetic basis of fat distribution.
Regensburg, Germany. In Nat Genet, 2010
We identified 13 new loci in or near RSPO3, VEGFA, TBX15-WARS2, NFE2L3, GRB14, DNM3-PIGC, ITPR2-SSPN, LY86, HOXC13, ADAMTS9, ZNRF3-KREMEN1, NISCH-STAB1 and CPEB4 (P = 1.9 × 10⁻⁹ to P = 1.8 × 10⁻⁴⁰) and the known signal at LYPLAL1.
