DQB1 locus alone explains most of the risk and protection in narcolepsy with cataplexy in Europe.
STUDY OBJECTIVE Prior research has identified five common genetic variants associated with narcolepsy with cataplexy in Caucasian patients. To replicate and/or extend these findings, we have testedExpand

Narcolepsy-Associated HLA Class I Alleles Implicate Cell-Mediated Cytotoxicity.
STUDY OBJECTIVES Narcolepsy with cataplexy is tightly associated with the HLA class II allele DQB1*06:02. Evidence indicates a complex contribution of HLA class II genes to narcolepsy susceptibilityExpand
