  • Absence of linkage to chromosomes 6q and 16p in a Greek population with knee osteoarthritis 

    Tsezou, A.; Karachalios, T.; Fytili, P.; Giannatou, E.; Christodoulou, K.; Hadjigeorgiou, G. M.; Malizos, K. N. (2006)
    Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common age-related debilitating disease of the joints characterized by degeneration of the articular cartilage which leads to joint pain, discomfort, and immobility. Several risk factors have been ...
  • Assessment of Osteoarthritis Candidate Genes in a Meta-Analysis of Nine Genome-Wide Association Studies 

    Rodriguez-Fontenla, C.; Calaza, M.; Evangelou, E.; Valdes, A. M.; Arden, N.; Blanco, F. J.; Carr, A.; Chapman, K.; Deloukas, P.; Doherty, M.; Esko, T.; Aleta, C. M.

D.; Gonzalez, A.; arc, Ogen Consortium (2014)
    Objective. To assess candidate genes for association with osteoarthritis (OA) and identify promising genetic factors and, secondarily, to assess the candidate gene approach in OA. Methods. A total of 199 candidate genes ...
  • Association of a BMP5 microsatellite with knee osteoarthritis: case-control study 

    Rodriguez-Fontenla, C.; Carr, A.; Gomez-Reino, J. J.; Tsezou, A.; Loughlin, J.; Gonzalez, A. (2012)
    Introduction: We aimed to explore the involvement of a multiallelic functional polymorphism in knee osteoarthritis (OA) susceptibility as a prototype of possible genetic factors escaping GWAS detection. Methods: OA patients ...
  • Family-based association study of the loci 2 and 3 in a European restless legs syndrome population 

    Kemlink, D.; Polo, O.; Montagna, P.; Provini, F.; Stiasny-Kolster, K.; Oertel, W.; de Weerd, A.; Nevsimalova, S.; Sonka, K.; Hogl, B.; Frauscher, B.; Poewe, W.; Trenkwalder, C.; Pramstaller, P. P.; Ferini-Strambi, L.; Zucconi, M.; Konofal, E.; Arnulf, I.; Hadjigeorgiou, G. M.; Happe, S.; Klein, C.; Hiller, A.; Lichtner, P.; Meitinger, T.; Muller-Myshok, B.; Winkelmann, J. (2007)
    Three loci for the restless legs syndrome (RLS) on chromosomes 12q, 14q, and 9p (RLS 1, RLS2, and RLS3) have been mapped, but no gene has been identified as yet. RLS1 has been confirmed in families from three different ...
  • Genetics of restless legs syndrome (RLS): State-of-the-art and future directions 

    Winkelmann, J.; Polo, O.; Provini, F.; Nevsimalova, S.; Kemlink, D.; Sonka, K.; Hogl, B.; Poewe, W.; Stiasny-Kolster, K.; Oertel, W.; de Weerd, A.; Strambi, L. F.; Zucconi, M.; Pramstaller, P. P.; Arnulf, I.; Trenkwalder, C.; Klein, C.; Hadjigeorgiou, G. M.; Happe, S.; Rye, D.; Montagna, P. (2007)
    Several studies demonstrated that 60% of restless legs syndrome (RLS) patients have a positive family history and it has been suggested that RLS is a highly hereditary trait. To date, several loci have been mapped but no ...
  • Osteoarthritis Year in Review 2014: genetics and genomics 

    Tsezou, A. (2014)
    Recent developments in genetics/genomics of osteoarthritis (OA) are discussed to improve our understanding of OA pathophysiology. The discovery of a novel variant near the NCOA3 (nuclear receptor coactivator 3) gene ...
