mesheuropmc: skin and connective tissue diseases | integumentary system
Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease in which depigmented skin results from destruction of\ud skin melanocytes, with strong epidemiologic association with several other autoimmune\ud diseases. In previous linkage and genome-wide association studies (GWAS1, GWAS2),\ud we id... View more
