Children with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) may experience growth plate dysfunction, according to a recent study in the journal Bone. Researchers from the Brittle Bone Disorders Consortium (BBDC) found a higher ratio of collagen X (CXM) levels for growth velocity in children with OI, revealing new clues about how this disease may affect the growth plate.
