  • The multiple factors contributing to the pathogenesis of osteoporosis include genetic and environmental factors. Because decrease in bone mineral density (BMD) is the major clinical indicator and a useful quantitative trait, many association and linkage studies of BMD have been conducted. Although the series of studies showed apparently significant associations, the genes have not been found that can be utilized in clinical practice. Several genes identified in robust genome-wide association… CONTINUE READING
