A genome-wide copy number association study of osteoporotic fractures points to the 6p25.1 locus.

The results suggest that deletions in the 6p25.1 locus may predispose to higher risk of fracture in a subset of populations of European origin;

larger and geographically restricted studies will be needed to confirm this regional association. This is a first step towards the evaluation of the role of rare CNVs in osteoporosis.
