(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-05-29)
Exfoliation syndrome (XFS) is the most common known risk factor for secondary glaucoma and a major cause of blindness worldwide. Variants in two genes, LOXL1 and CACNA1A, have previously been associated with XFS. To further ...
Association of genetic variants with primary angle closure glaucoma in two different populations
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
PURPOSE: A recent large genome-wide association study (GWAS) identified multiple variants associated with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). The present study investigated the role of these variants in two cohorts ...
