      Multiple myeloma (MM) is a plasma cell malignancy with a significant heritable basis. Genome-wide association studies have transformed our understanding of MM predisposition, but individual studies have had limited power ...

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have transformed our understanding of susceptibility to multiple myeloma (MM), but much of the heritability remains unexplained. We report a new GWAS, a meta-analysis with previous ...
    • The multiple myeloma risk allele at 5q15 lowers ELL2 expression and increases ribosomal gene expression 

      Ali, Mina; Ajore, Ram; Wihlborg, Anna-Karin; Niroula, Abhishek; Swaminathan, Bhairavi; Johnsson, Ellinor; Stephens, Owen W; Morgan, Gareth; Meissner, Tobias; Turesson, Ingemar; Goldschmidt, Hartmut; Mellqvist, Ulf-Henrik; Gullberg, Urban; Hansson, Markus; Hemminki, Kari; Nahi, Hareth; Waage, Anders; Weinhold, Niels; Nilsson, Björn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Recently, we identified ELL2 as a susceptibility gene for multiple myeloma (MM). To understand its mechanism of action, we performed expression quantitative trait locus analysis in CD138+ plasma cells from 1630 MM patients ...
