Low rates of fetal and infant growth are associated with the metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease in later life. We investigated common genetic variation in the GH-CSH gene cluster on chromosome 17q23 encoding GH, placental lactogens [chorionic somatomammotropins (CSH)], and placental GH variant in relation to fetal and infant growth and phenotypic(More)
Epidemiological studies point to the importance of gene-environment interactions during early life as determinants of later osteoporosis and fracture. We examined associations between common single nucleotide polymorphisms in the human GH (GH1) gene and weight in infancy, adult bone mass and bone loss rates, and circulating GH profiles. Two hundred and five(More)
