A genome scan in a single pedigree with a high prevalence of multiple sclerosis.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that is widely believed to be autoimmune in nature. Genetic-epidemiological studies implicate susceptibility genes in the pathogenesis of MS, although non-MHC susceptibility linkages have been difficult to confirm. Insight into pathways that are intrinsic to other complex diseases has come from the genetic analysis of large, autosomal-dominant kindreds. Here, we present a genetic study of a large and unique kindred in which MS appears to follow...
