Mapping reveals 110 MS-risk genes

Norwegian researchers have mapped genetic variations associated with an increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) and myasthenia gravis (MG), bringing science one step closer to understanding these serious autoimmune disorders.

The Norwegian researchers have taken part in an international cooperative effort to map 110 genetic variations that increase the risk of MS and MG. Most of these genetic variations have been mapped in recent years.

“Rapid advances have been made in this area of research,” explains Hanne F. Harbo, professor at the University of Oslo and head of the clinical science group at Oslo University Hospital.
