Association of vitamin-D and calcitonin receptor gene polymorphism in paediatric nephrolithiasis

Abstract

We investigated the role of vitamin-D receptor gene (VDR) and calcitonin receptor (CTR) gene polymorphism in childhood nephrolithiasis in the north Indian population. A control group of 60 healthy paediatric individuals (age range 4−16 years) and 50 paediatric patients (age range 2–14 years) with kidney stones were examined. Polymorphism in both genes (VDR… (More)
