BACKGROUND AND AIM: Celiac disease (CD) is a multifactorial disease with involvement of both environmental and genetic susceptibility factors. The HLA-DQ loci account for 2000 CD patients and 4000 control individuals) question the role of MYO9B at the CELIAC4 locus as a disease-causing gene. Moreover, none of the investigated SNPs explain the linkage at the CELIAC2 locus.
