The genetic bases of peak bone mass in males, as determinants of an individual’s risk of developing osteoporotic fractures in old age and their interaction with dietary and lifestyle factors are still poorly understood.
Our objective was to examine the relative contribution of genetic and environmental variables to the regulation of peak bone mass in a population-based cohort of young healthy men, focusing on the BsmI polymorphism of vitamin D receptor (VDR)gene and the AluI polymorphism of calcitonin receptor (CTR)gene.
