Novel SNPs identified for bone mineral accretion in children

June 24, 2015

Two novel tubulin pathway single nucleotide polymorphisms were associated with independent interactive effects of cumulative corticosteroid dose on bone mineral accretion in children with asthma who underwent various oral prednisone bursts, according to study results.

Significant decreases in bone mineral accretion occur with long-term intermittent oral corticosteroid use in children with asthma. Heung-Woo Park, MD, PhD, of the Channing Division of Network Medicine and the division of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and colleagues sought to identify possible genetic factors that influence oral corticosteroid dose effects on bone mineral accretion in children with asthma.
