Association between endometriosis and the interleukin 1A (IL1A) locus.
STUDY QUESTION: Are single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the interleukin 1A (IL1A) gene locus associated with endometriosis risk? SUMMARY ANSWER: We found evidence for strong association between IL1A SNPs and endometriosis risk. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Genetic factors contribute substantially to the complex aetiology of endometriosis and the disease has an estimated heritability of ∼51%. We, and others, have conducted genome-wide association (GWA) studies for endometriosis, which identifi...Expand abstract
