Effect of VDR polymorphisms on growth and bone mineral density in homozygous beta thalassaemia
Summary. We examined the effect of vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms at exon 2 (FokI) and intron 8 (BsmI) on the stature and bone mineral density at femoral neck (FBMD) and lumbar spine (LBMD)Expand

Role of polymorphic sequences 5′ to the Gγ gene and 5′ to the β gene on the homozygous β thalassemic phenotype
Sixty‐seven homozygous male and female thalassemic patients with different phenotypes, aged between 8 and 33 years, were divided into three groups, according to the severity of their β‐thalassemiaExpand
