Genetic cause behind bone complications because of cystic fibrosisGenetic reasons have been suggested as the cause behind bone problems that generally accompany cystic fibrosis, according to a recent study by Dr Christina Haston, a researcher of the McGill University Health Centre research Institute.

The study by Dr. Haston suggested that genetics contribute to bone frailty, a finding that might have some implications in modifying therapeutic practices.

The research article was published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine and the study was funded by the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, Valorisation Recherche Quebec, and the Fonds de la Recherche en Santé du Québec.
