(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-03-10)
      Background: Gene variants known to contribute to Autoimmune Addison's disease (AAD) susceptibility include those at the MHC, MICA, CIITA, CTLA4, PTPN22, CYP27B1, NLRP-1 and CD274 loci. The majority of the genetic component ...

      A meta-analysis of publicly available summary statistics on multiple sclerosis combined with three Nordic multiple sclerosis cohorts (21,079 cases, 371,198 controls) revealed seven sequence variants associating with multiple ...
    • Identity-by-descent mapping in a Scandinavian multiple sclerosis cohort 

      Westerlind, Helga; Imrell, Kerstin; Ramanujam, Ryan; Myhr, Kjell-Morten; Celius, Elisabeth Gulowsen; Harbo, Hanne Flinstad; Oturai, Annette Bang; Hamsten, Anders; Alfredsson, Lars; Olsson, Tomas; Kockum, Ingrid; Koski, Timo; Hillert, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      In an attempt to map chromosomal regions carrying rare gene variants contributing to the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), we identified segments shared identical-by-descent (IBD) using the software BEAGLE 4.0’s refined IBD ...
