Genetic variants underlying risk of endometriosis: insights from meta-analysis of eight genome-wide association and replication datasets.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Endometriosis is a heritable common gynaecological condition influenced by multiple genetic and environmental factors. Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have proved successful in identifying common genetic variants of moderate effects for various complex diseases. To date, eight GWAS and replication studies from multiple populations have been published on endometriosis.
