Preliminary human data show increased RANK expression correlated with poor outcome, and circulating concentrations of osteoprotegerin, the decoy RANK receptor inhibiting RANK-axis signalling, are increased in several conditions associated with decreased risk of breast cancer (e.
Osteoprotegerin (OPG), the receptor activator of nuclear factor-[kappa]B (RANK), and RANK ligand (RANKL) comprise a system of proteins that play a key role in regulating bone remodeling and are well known as targets for developing therapeutics to treat osteoporosis.

Regarding osteoprotegerin, studies have shown that it stimulates autophagy via important signaling pathways in vascular smooth muscle cells, leading this way to the weakening and remodeling of the arterial wall [31].
