VitGene Generalized Vitiligo Genetics Study-Phase 2

Generalized vitiligo is an autoimmune disease in which melanocyte loss results in patchy depigmentation of skin and hair. For this third GWAS of generalized vitiligo, SNPs were genotyped in 1,059 generalized vitiligo cases of European-derived white (EUR) ancestry using the Illumina Human OmniExpress BeadChip array. The data were combined with those of Phase 1 and Phase 2 to provide at least 85% power to detect associations with OR > 1.22 at genome-wide significance (P = 5 x 10-8) for MAF > 0.25.
