Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is associated with genotype

International journal "Orthopaedics" published a study by Dr. Ian Foam and Gwaan Liang, who has identified the root cause of idiopathic adolescent scoliosis. The reason for the formation of idiopathic scoliosis lies in the genetic modification of the receptor, perceiving the hormone estrogen.

The term "idiopathic scoliosis" means that the cause of this pathology was not known, now console idiopathic inappropriate, as the work of doctors Yang Foam and Gwaan Liang says about the relationship of this pathology with the gene variant protein receptors GRER perceiving the hormone estrogen.

This protein binds to estrogen and mobilizes calcium inside the cell. Earlier studies on animals have shown that mutation of this protein leads to impaired growth and muscle building.

Today, we can say what is the cause of idiopathic juvenile scoliosis, however, affect these reasons, given the current development of medicine is impossible. Remain only hope that we would find the time, the level of medicine is such that the doctor will be able to make changes even at the gene level.
