Whole Genome Association Study of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The goal of this collaborative study was to identify new genetic risk factors for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). To do this we conducted a genome-wide scan by combining the resources and expertise from a number of SLE researchers to establish a large sample set comprising 1311 SLE cases and 3340 controls. The SLE case samples were genotyped from the following collections: 338 subjects from the Autoimmune Biomarkers Collaborative Network (ABCoN), an NIH/NIAMS funded repository, 141 subjects from the Multiple Autoimmune Disease Genetics Consortium (MADGC), 613 subjects from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Lupus Genetics, and 335 subjects from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), plus 8 samples collected at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
A total of 3583 control samples were examined in the association analyses. As part of this project, 1861 control samples were selected and then genotyped from the New York Cancer Project (NYCP), based on self-described ethnicity, ... (Show More)
