Abstract

PURPOSE:

To confirm association of the complement factor H allelic variant (CFH Y402H) and the LOC387715/HTRA1 (LOC387715 A69S) risk alleles with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

STUDY POPULATION:

Study of 89 Caucasian patients with neovascular (exudative) AMD and 232 Caucasian controls.

METHODS:

The Y402H variant of CFH gene and A69S variant of LOC387715/HTRA1 gene locus were examined.

RESULTS:

For CFH, the odds ratio for the homozygous variant was 4.97 (CI 2.52 to 9.79). For LOC387715/HTRA1 the odds ratio for the homozygous risk variant was 7.75 (CI 3.46 to 17.35). The odds ratio for heterozygous carriers was 3.35 (CI 1.91 to 5.90).
