Non-Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) genes have concomitant, although modest, effects on multiple sclerosis (MS) susceptibility; however findings have varied in different populations. Here we present the results of an association study of 16 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 10 non-HLA genes (IL7R, IL2RA, CLEC-16A, TYK2, CD58, IRF5, STAT3, CTLA-4,(More)
BACKGROUND There have been few magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of the spinal cord in large multiple sclerosis (MS) patient cohorts and little is known about correlations between cord lesions and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles. OBJECTIVE To investigate the spectrum of MRI changes in the spinal cord in MS and associations with the HLA-DRB1(More)
