Ankylosing spondylitis is a common inflammatory rheumatic disease. Both susceptibility to and clinical manifestations of the disease are highly heritable. Although some genes, notably HLA-B27, have been implicated in susceptibility to the disease, the genetics of the condition are complex and many more genes involved in the condition await discovery.

40 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
