Sex- and age-specific genetic analysis of chronic back #pain

Sex differences for chronic back pain (cBP) have been reported, with females usually exhibiting greater morbidity, severity, and poorer response to treatment. Genetic factors acting in an age-specific manner have been implicated but never comprehensively explored. We performed sex- and age-stratified genome-wide association study and single nucleotide polymorphism-by-sex interaction analysis for cBP defined as β€œBack … Continue reading Sex- and age-specific genetic analysis of chronic back #pain
