The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between the interleukin-6 (IL-6) -174 G>C promoter polymorphism and exercise-induced femoral cortical bone resorption. Skeletal response to exercise was assessed in 130 male Caucasian army recruits. Five cross-sectional magnetic resonance images of the right femur were obtained before and after a 10-week period of basic physical training, and changes in cross-sectional cortical area were calculated. Recruits were genotyped for the...Expand abstract
