Polymorphism in vitamin D receptor is associated with bone mineral density in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis
Low bone mass and osteopenia have been reported in the axial and peripheral skeleton of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients. Furthermore, several recent studies have shown that geneExpand

Alterations in the differentiation ability of mesenchymal stem cells in patients with nontraumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head: Comparative analysis according to the risk factor
It has been suggested that decreased replication capacity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) or decreased MSCs activity in the bone marrow is related to nontraumatic osteonecrosis (ON). However, littleExpand
