A multinational team reported results yesterday from the largest genomewide association study to date looking at genetic risk factors underlying multiple sclerosis (MS). The study, which looked at nearly 10,000 individuals with multiple sclerosis and more than 17,000 healthy controls, has confirmed most of the 26 potential risk genes identified to date, and found an additional 29 variants that correlate with risk. The results were published in the Aug. 11, 2011, issue of Nature.
