Abstract:

The etiology of idiopathic scoliosis remains unknown. The condition results in a characteristic deformity of the spine and surrounding tissues. Both Types I and II collagen are important constituents of the affected tissues, and thus defective collagens are reasonable candidates for the primary abnormality in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).
