The following two papers show the gradually increasing genetic knowledge base in ACL science, and medicine generally. The first paper is illustrative of the impressive work being done showing that not all connective tissue is created equal. At the extremes, such as Ehlers Danlos syndrome, this has always been appreciated. But scientists are now able to correlate genetically different collagen with differing injury rates. In this study, different haplotypes of the COL5A1 gene were associated with greater or lesser risk of ACL tears. A study group and control group of soccer players was used. As the authors state, this a non-modifiable risk factor physically. However, one might, for example, counsel an athlete with a high risk haplotype to undertake an ACL prevention program given the greater risk. MORE
