BACKGROUND: Whether polymorphisms in VDR gene affect the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis or not remain unclear. Thus, the authors performed a meta-analysis to more robustly assess associations between polymorphisms in VDR gene and the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis by integrating the results of previous literature.

METHODS: Medline, Embase, Wanfang, VIP and CNKI were searched comprehensively for eligible literatures, and sixty-seven genetic association studies were finally selected to be included in this meta-analysis.

RESULTS: We found that ApaI rs7975232 (dominant comparison: OR = 0.77, p = 0.007; allele comparison: OR = 0.81, p = 0.04), BsmI rs1544410 (dominant comparison: OR = 0.69, p = 0.002; allele comparison: OR = 0.78, p = 0.008) and TaqI rs731236 (recessive comparison: OR = 1.32 , p = 0.01) polymorphisms were significantly associated with the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Caucasians, whereas FokI rs10735810 polymorphism was significantly associated with the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Asians (dominant comparison: OR = 0.61, p = 0.0001; recessive comparison: OR = 2.02, p = 0.001; allele comparison: OR = 0.68, p = 0.002).

CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis shows that ApaI rs7975232, BsmI rs1544410 and TaqI rs731236 polymorphisms may affect the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Caucasians, while BsmI rs1544410 polymorphism may affect the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Asians.

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
