|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Anorexia Nervosa Genetics Initiative (ANGI) is an international collaboration that recruited individuals with a lifetime history of anorexia nervosa from the United States (US), Australia/New Zealand (ANZ), Sweden (SE), and Denmark (DK). Matched controls, with no history of eating disorders, were also recruited from the US, SE, and DK. Recruitment avenues included national registers (SE, DK), treatment centers (US, ANZ, SE, DK), and social and traditional media (US, ANZ, SE). Participants provided blood samples and clinical information. Diagnoses were based on DSM-IV or ICD-10 criteria (amenorrhea was not required). Genotype data are available for 12,918 participants.
*NOTE: Denmark data cannot be shared openly but require prior and individual permission by the data owner: The Head of the National Center for Register Based Research Aarhus, DK. Genotyping of samples from Denmark was completed using the Illumina PsychArray (data not supplied).
