Follow-Up analysis of genome-wide association data identifies novel loci for type 1 diabetes
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1
Genetic Predisposition to Disease
Genome-Wide Association Study
Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide
Evaluation of a large number of statistical GWA candidates in several independent cohorts has revealed additional loci that are associated with type 1 diabetes. The two genes at these respective loci, UBASH3A and BACH2, are both biologically relevant to autoimmunity.
