Vitamin D receptor (VDR) BsmI gene polymorphism has been reported to be strongly associated with osteoporosis risk in some studies. However, the results from those studies are still conflicting. We performed a meta-analysis of studies relating the VDR BsmI gene polymorphism to the risk of osteoporosis. The search was performed in the databases of PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library and CBM-disc (China Biological Medicine Database) as of October 1, 2011, and the eligible investigations were recruited for this meta-analysis. Forty-one investigations were identified for the meta-analysis of association between VDR BsmI gene polymorphism and osteoporosis risk. There lacked an association between VDR BsmI gene polymorphism and osteoporosis risk for overall populations, Caucasians and Asians (overall populations: B vs b: p = 0.65, BB vs (Bb + bb): p = 0.14, bb vs (BB + Bb): p = 0.86; Caucasians: B vs b: p = 0.65, BB vs (Bb + bb): p = 0.38, bb vs (BB + Bb): p = 0.83; Asians: B vs b: p = 0.87, BB vs (Bb + bb): p = 0.62, bb vs (BB + Bb): p = 0.66). In conclusion, VDR BsmI B/b gene polymorphism is not associated with the susceptibility of osteoporosis in overall populations, Caucasians, and Asians.
