Objective: In acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), various clinical risk factors and genetic predispositions contribute to the development of bone complications during and after chemotherapy. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether vitamin D receptor (VDR) Fok1 and collagen protein Col1A1 Sp1-binding site gene polymorphisms, which are important in bone mineral and matrix formation, have effects on the development of bone abnormalities in childhood ALL survivors.
