In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. In the autumn the University’s research outputs will be available to search and browse via a new Research Portal. Until then the University’s full publication record can be accessed via a temporary portal and the old eScholar content is available to search and browse via this archive.

OBJECTIVE:To investigate the involvement of neuroendocrine candidate genes in the aetiopathogenesis of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS:Single-nucleotide polymorphisms and intragenic microsatellite markers within five neuroendocrine candidate genes (CRH, CBG, CYP19, ESR1, PRL) were investigated in 463 clinically characterized UK Caucasian JIA patients and a panel of 276 unrelated, healthy UK Caucasian controls. RESULTS:None of the polymorphisms investigated showed any statistically significant associations with JIA. CONCLUSIONS:The lack of association with polymorphisms of these neuroendocrine genes suggests that they are not involved in susceptibility to JIA
