Vitiligo susceptibility is a complex genetic trait that may involve genes important for melanin biosynthesis, response to oxidative stress, and/or regulation of autoimmunity, as well as environmental factors. We report here case-control and family-based association studies for the catalase gene (CAT) in vitiligo patients. The CAT gene was selected as a(More)
Genes within the class II region of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), including genes involved in antigen processing and presentation, have been reported to be associated with several autoimmune diseases. We report here that the LMP/TAP gene region is significantly associated with vitiligo, a disorder in which biochemical defects and/or autoimmune(More)
