Abstract

Objective: We have not identified any objective evidence in the literature about the effects of raloxifene treatment on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory markers. We investigated the antioxidant/anti-inflammatory effects of raloxifene and the association of its antioxidant/anti-inflammatory effects with body mass index (BMI) and postmenopausal period in women with osteoporosis (OP).
