Modelling genetic susceptibility to multiple sclerosis with family data.
 

Author(s): Cullen O'Gorman, Rui Lin, James Stankovich, Simon A Broadley

Journal: Neuroepidemiology. 2013 ;40(1):1-12.

 

A genetic contribution to susceptibility is well established in multiple sclerosis (MS) and 57 associated genetic loci have been identified. We have undertaken a meta-analysis of familial risk studies with the aims of providing definitive figures for risks to relatives, performing ...

Sex-related factors in multiple sclerosis susceptibility and progression.
 

Author(s): Rhonda R Voskuhl, Stefan M Gold

Journal:

 

The pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS) involves complex interactions between genetic susceptibility and environmental triggers. Clinical observations suggest that the study of sex differences might provide important insight into mechanisms of pathogenesis and progression of the ...
