Abstract

Atopic dermatitis is a common inflammatory skin disease caused by interaction of genetic and environmental factors. On the basis of data from a genome-wide association study (GWAS) and a validation study comprising a total of 3,328 subjects with atopic dermatitis and 14,992 controls in the Japanese population, we report here 8 new susceptibility loci: IL1RL1-IL18R1-IL18RAP (P combined = 8.36 × 10-18), the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region (P = 8.38 × 10-20), OR10A3-NLRP10 (P = 1.54 × 10-22), GLB1 (P = 2.77 × 10-16), CCDC80 (P = 1.56 × 10-19), CARD11 (P = 7.83 × 10-9), ZNF365 (P = 5.85 × 10-20) and CYP24A1-PFDN4 (P = 1.65 × 10-8). We also replicated the associations of the FLG, C11orf30, TMEM232-SLC25A46, TNFRSF6B-ZGPAT, OVOL1, ACTL9 and KIF3A-IL13 loci that were previously reported in GWAS of European and Chinese individuals and a meta-analysis of GWAS for atopic dermatitis. These findings advance the understanding of the genetic basis of atopic dermatitis.
