Study Description

We conducted GWAS of sporadic CJD, variant CJD, iatrogenic CJD, inherited prion disease, kuru and resistance to kuru despite attendance at mortuary feasts. After quality control we analysed 2000 samples and 6015 control individuals (provided by the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium and KORA-gen), for 491032-511862 SNPs in the European study. Association studies were done in each geographical and aetiological group followed by several combined analyses.
