  • Objectives To identify non-major histocompatibility complex susceptible genes that might contribute to Behçet's disease (BD). Methods We performed a genome-wide association study using DNA samples from a Korean population consisting of 379 BD patients and 800 controls. A replication study was performed in a Japanese population (363 BD patients and 272 controls). To evaluate the functional implication of the target single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP), gene expression levels in peripheral T… CONTINUE READING
