The researchers are confident that this research connecting elastin and stretch marks can lead to better treatments. “Through this first of its kind study, we’ve identified new genetic associations that can provide deeper insights into the root causes of stretch marks, and look forward to continuing research in this space," noted Joyce Tung, PhD, director of research for the company.
The research teams plans to continue the study, investigating the effect of genes associated with obesity and the development of stretch marks. It also plans to replicate the work in a more precisely phenotyped population and look at possible associations in non-European populations.
