Hum Genomics 5:538-68. 2011..These data not only extend previous biological studies in the AMD field, but further emphasise common antecedents between several disorders with an inflammatory/immunogenic component such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and AMD...
- Multiple loci influencing hippocampal degeneration identified by genome scanScott A Melville
Department of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine, MA, USA
Ann Neurol 72:65-75. 2012..We conducted a 2-stage GWAS for AD-related quantitative measures of hippocampal volume (HV), total cerebral volume (TCV), and white matter hyperintensities (WMH)...
- Influence of ROBO1 and RORA on risk of age-related macular degeneration reveals genetically distinct phenotypes in disease pathophysiologyGyungah Jun
Medicine Biomedical Genetics, Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
PLoS ONE 6:e25775. 2011..These findings suggest that distinct ROBO1 variants may influence the risk of wet and dry AMD, and the effects of ROBO1 on AMD risk may be modulated by RORA variants...

Department of Medicine, Boston University, USA
Arch Neurol 67:1473-84. 2010..To determine whether genotypes at CLU, PICALM, and CR1 confer risk for Alzheimer disease (AD) and whether risk for AD associated with these genes is influenced by apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotypes...
