The allele rates of VDR, Collal and CALCR genes in 174 non-related individuals Northwest Russian population and in 70 patients with severe osteoporosis (SO) were investigated by PCR-RFLP method. The frequency of functionally abnormal allele t of VDR gene in a group of SO patients was Sl,4±5,9%, and it was significantly higher (p<0,001) than this one in population (32,6±4,9%). Analysis of Collal gene proved significant preponderance (p<0,0001) of functionally abnormal allele s in SO patients (50,0±5,9%) compared to its average frequency in population (17,5±4,9%). No significant differences (p>0,05) between frequencies of functionally abnormal T allele of CALCR gene in SO (84,4±4,9%) patients and its average frequency in population were recorded (73,8±3,9%). Thus, according to our data clear-cut association between functionally abnormal alleles of VDR and Collal genes and osteoporosis
