Genome-Wide Association Study in Patients With Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Lung Disease

2016-07-15 01:23:22 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study was to elucidate genetic susceptibility of patients with nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease using genome-wide association study.


Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are ubiquitous environmental organisms. NTM lung disease is increasing, however, genetic susceptibility of patients with the disease have not been identified. To elucidate the genetic susceptibility of NTM lung disease, the investigators perform a genome-wide association study (GWAS) including patients with NTM lung disease and healthy controls (case : control = 1 : 3). The age-, sex-matched control group will be recruited from the Korean Healthy Twin Study.
