A candidate gene study identifies a haplotype of CD2 as novel susceptibility factor for systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

Our study establishes CD2 as a new susceptibility factor for SSc, in a European Caucasian population, confirming the sharing of autoimmune risk factors by SSc and rheumatoid arthritis. PubMed, Clin Exp Rheumatol, 07/01/2016. (Also see Causes of Scleroderma: Genetics)
