We analyzed the association of HLA-DR and -DQ haplotypes and alleles with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 91 patients and 91 controls from Iceland using the relative predispositional effect method. The aim was to establish whether there is heterogeneity in HLA associations with MS, whether there are both predispositional and protective haplotypes, and whether(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) with a complex genetic background. Here we use a genome-wide association strategy with 4804 microsatellite markers successfully typed in separately pooled DNA from 200 patients and 200 controls. A total of 91 markers showed evidence of association. When compared to our(More)
