news rs4355801, was associated with a 20% increased risk of osteoporosis (significant at P=0.038).
At least one copy of the risk allele (A) of rs4355801 was found in 79% of study participants.
Participants carrying at least one copy of each risk allele -- 22% of the study population -- had a 50% increased risk of osteoporosis, which was significant at P=0.0026, and a 29% increased risk of osteoporotic fractures (significant at P=0.014).
[PMID 18455228] rs3736228 associated with decreased bone mineral density (p=6.3x10(-12) for lumbar spine and p=1.9x10(-4) for femoral neck) and an increased risk of both osteoporotic fractures (odds ratio [OR] 1.3, 95% CI 1.09-1.52, p=0.002) and osteoporosis (OR 1.3, 1.08-1.63, p=0.008).
rs4355801 associated with decreased bone mineral density (p=7.6x10(-10) for lumbar spine and p=3.3x10(-8) for femoral neck) and increased risk of osteoporosis (OR 1.2, 95% CI 1.01-1.42, p=0.038).
The presence of both risk alleles increased the risk of osteoporotic fractures (OR 1.3, 1.08-1.63, p=0.006) and this effect was independent of bone mineral density
