Genetic study of diabetic retinopathy: recruitment methodology and analysis of baseline characteristics
Background: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a blinding disease of increasing prevalence that is caused by a complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Here we describe the patient recruitment methodology, case and control definitions, and clinical characteristics of a study sample to be used for genome-wide association analysis to detect genetic risk variants of DR. Methods: One thousand six hundred sixty-nine participants with either type 1 (T1) or type 2 (T2) diabetes mellitus (DM)...[Show more]
