Objectives: Previous studies indicate that about half of boys and one fourth of girls suffer a fracture before the age of 16 years. Similarly, children of European descent are more prone to fracture. Here we aimed to investigate at the population level the influence of sex, ethnic background and bone mineral density (BMD) on the occurrence of bone fractures in children of school age.Methods: This study (n=3,633 children with complete information...

Objectives: Advanced or delayed physiological age may influence significantly health and disease processes. Physiological age can be estimated using several parameters including dental age (DA). Previous meta-analyses studying “Number of Teeth at 15 Months” (NT15M) and “Age at First Teeth Eruption” (AFTE) have identified 15 loci. We performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) meta-analysis to identi...
