Preprints with The Lancet is part of SSRN´s First Look, a place where journals and other research experts identify content of interest prior to publication. These preprint papers are not peer-reviewed and are posted here as part of a 12-month trial. Authors have either opted in at submission to The Lancet family of journals to post their preprints on Preprints with The Lancet, or submitted directly via SSRN. The usual SSRN checks and a Lancet-specific check for appropriateness and transparency have been applied. These papers should not be used for clinical decision making or reporting of research to a lay audience without indicating that this is preliminary research that has not been peer-reviewed.

Abstract

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disease characterized by bone fragility and repeated fractures. The bone fragility associated with OI is caused by a defect in collagen formation due to mutation of COL1A1 or COL1A2. Current strategies for treating OI are not curative. In this study, we generated induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSCs) from OI patients harboring a mutation in the COL1A1 gene. OI-iPSCs exhibited abnormal collagen triple-helix structure and defective mineralization during osteogenesis in vitro. Gene-corrected OI-iPSCs exhibited recovery from the "untwisted" to "twisted" collagen triple-helix structure. In addition, gene correction restored osteogenic potential.
