Genetic Testing Research in Metabolic Bone Diseases
The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of metabolic bone diseases through DNA analysis.
Evidence suggests that genetic factors play a significant role in metabolic bone diseases. Therefore, it is important that the DNA of the individuals with diseases in which inherited factors may play a role be available for research. This study will obtain DNA from volunteers. The DNA will be extracted and analyzed (sequencing of genes that have become known to cause disease). The remainder of the sample will be stored for and future DNA and biochemical testing that will help us understand the disease a little better.
Participants will not be paid for their participation.
