Discovery of bone gene

According to researchers- a gene mutation causing high bone density, which could open the way to new osteoporosis treatments. Bone is a dynamic material, which is being formed and destroyed all the time. When the bone loss side of the equation predominates, you are at risk of osteoporosis.// But researchers at Texas University have been studying a family with unusually high bone density - the opposite of what happens in osteoporosis. They now report upon the gene that drives this process.

This family seems to have a higher set point for bone than the general population - bone is formed faster than it is destroyed. Discovering the gene involved may result in a new generation of osteoporosis drugs. Current treatments focus on preventing further bone loss - but it is difficult to encourage the body to build more bone, only if it is possible.
