Additional Information:

We used that money to get pilot data looking at the correlation between a collagen x biomarker and the anthropometric and radiographic measures of growth.  We found that the biomarker statistically correlated to every measure.  We used this data to apply for a Shrine grant in May of 2018. The goal was to follow these patients throughout their entire growth peak growth and to expand the study to include more patients. We found out in November that we had been funded for four years at four centers for a total of $659,000.00.  We recently had our PI meeting and all four sites have submitted their IRBs, we are hoping to begin data collection at the other sites starting next month.
