Sample text

6,7,77–80 The relative prevalence of mutations in different genes might therefore be reflected in a different prevalence of various types of OI in separate human populations. 8 In 1975, such was the state of knowledge of matrix biology including collagen (type I) biochemistry that very little light was shed on this subject of genetic heterogeneity, but the knowledge base was rapidly changing. After 30 years of intense study of collagen (1952–1982), which in retrospect was collagen type I, and recognition that there were other fibrillar collagens in cartilage and blood vessels distinguishable at the biochemical, biophysical and ultrastructural level,9,10 the conditions were present by 1975 for a major leap forward in discovery of the molecular pathology of OI.

Here, the editorial objective was to include as many OI-related topics as space permits, because at this time of near scientific explosion, drawing a boundary line might miss what will be important in the near future. The editors express their appreciation to each of the authors who have contributed their scientific experience and insight to the production of this book.
