      A genome-wide association study (GWAS) for open angle glaucoma (OAG) blindness was conducted using a discovery cohort of 590 cases with severe visual field loss and 3956 controls. Genome-wide significant associations were ...
    • Glaucoma risk alleles at CDKN2B-AS1 are associated with lower intraocular pressure, normal tension glaucoma, and advanced glaucoma 

      Burdon, Kathryn Penelope; Crawford, April; Casson, Robert J; Hewitt, Alex W; Landers, John; Danoy, Patrick; Mackey, David A; Mitchell, Paul; Healey, Paul R; Craig, Jamie E (Elsevier, 2012-08-01)
      Patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) carrying the glaucoma risk alleles at the 9p21 locus have larger vertical cup-to-disc ratios and lower intraocular pressure (IOP) than POAG patients without these alleles. ...
