Genes Linked to Osteoporosis Identified

Apr 29, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: HON

“When we look at a screening of genes for osteoporosis and low-impact fractures, we find five loci in the genome, and a couple of them fall into very well-known areas associated with the formation of bone”

Two teams of researchers report finding a series of gene variants linked to bone density and the risk for fracture, which might also be linked to osteoporosis. via HON

This is an exciting research development with regard to osteoporosis genome studies. They may be able to develop treatment to prevent osteoporosis.

Its good to see that there is information out there that may show that there is a root cause of osteoporosis. Many who have started a Fosamax lawsuit may find this information useful.

Vaccines F up genes. Likely it all starts there.

This study is interesting as this finding confirms what many have already suspected; that osteoporosis is just as likely influenced by hereditary predisposition. Knowning about this can help someone plan accordingly for their care and means preventing this condition.

Patients who have osteoporosis may find this information very useful. Especially for those who suffered the side effects in taking bone drugs for treating this disease. Like the one I read from here:
