A large international group of researchers has identified 32 new genetic regions linked to fractures and osteoporosis.
Variations in these regions could offer protection from, or greater risk for, bone-weakening disease, the investigators reported in a new study published in the April 15 online edition ofNature Genetics.
The study authors added that their findings could lead to the development of new osteoporosis drugs.
