The search for influencing factors and new pathways in aseptic loosening of arthroplasties is a major focus of recent studies. Analyses of polymorphisms of genes revealed a correlation between a specific allele variant and aseptic loosening. The BCL2 gene encoding Bcl-2 with its BCL2 -938C>A polymorphism is a crucial factor of cell cycle control and cell(More)
The G-protein Galphas is involved in the physiology and pathophysiology of bone. Especially, Galphas is a key regulator of interleukin-6, which is a potent promoter of aseptic loosening. We hypothesized that the common single nucleotide polymorphism GNAS1 T393C could also affect time to aseptic loosening. Caucasian patients were genotyped for the GNAS1(More)
