EURODISC Sintesi della relazione

Project ID: QLK6-CT-2002-02582
Finanziato nell'ambito di: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Paese: Finland

Most of the 28 studied candidate genes were associated with the degenerative MRI findings in the intervertebral discs confirming the dominant role of heredity in spinal degeneration

In preliminary analyses, among the 28 candidate genes studied in EURODISC project and using both visual and digital (created by SpEx© software) parameters, we have identified 24 genes associated with different degenerative findings (3 times more than what had been identified earlier). In addition, we also identified four genes associated with back pain history.
