DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE AND GENETIC

İntervertebral disk hastalığının gelişimi her ne kadar multifaktöriyel bir durum olsa da, disk dejenerasyonunda rol oynayan genlerle ilişkili son zamanda yapılan çalışmalar, genetik faktörlerin disk hastalığı gelişimindeki rollerinin önemini ortaya koymuştur. Bu çalışmadaki amacımız intervertebral disk dejenerasyonunda rol oynayan genlerle ilgili mevcut bilgilerin gözden geçirilmesidir

DEJENERATİF DİSK HASTALIĞI VE GENETİK

Although development of the intervertebral disc disease is a multifactorial condition, recent studies associated with genes playing a role in disc dejeneration revealed that the importance of the genetic factors in the development of disc disease. Our purpose of this study is to review current knowledge on genes associated with intervertebral disc degeneration
