Analysis of human leucocyte antigen genes in Caucasian patients with idiopathic Moyamoya angiopathy

Abstract

The etiology and genetic susceptibility of Moyamoya angiopathy (MMA) (Moyamoya disease, Moyamoya syndrome and unilateral type of MMA) still remain unclear. In Asian patient cohorts several HLA markers were described to be associated with MMA, but in Caucasians very little is known about genetic susceptibility of this angiopathy. We analysed DNA of 33… (More)
