Scientific Background : OPG is an 11b member of tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily which is an osteoblast-secreted decoy receptor that functions as a negative regulator of bone resorption. OPG can act as a soluble factor in the regulation of bone mass and it may be useful in the treatment of osteoporosis associated with increased osteoclast activity (1). osteoprotegerin ( OPG) is an independent risk factor for the progression of atherosclerosis and onset of cardiovascular disease. OPG also play a critical role in the development of osteolytic bone disease in multiple myeloma and that targeting this system may have therapeutic potential (2).
