Identification of susceptibility gene associated with female primary Sjögren’s syndrome in Han Chinese by genome-wide association study

Abstract

Primary Sjögren’s syndrome (PSS) is an autoimmune disease targeting exocrine glands. It ten times more dominantly affects women than men with an onset peak at menopause. The genetic factor predisposing women to PSS remains unclear. Therefore, we aimed to identify susceptibility loci for PSS in women. We performed genome-wide association study (GWAS) using… (More)
