119 CONCLUSION Great progress has been made in elucidation of the factors involved in the pathogenesis of AS in recent years. It has become clear that HLA-B27, the primary genetic factor identified in AS pathogenesis, functions in a variety of roles including “classical” antigen presentation. How these lead to AS remains to be seen. examined, especially through international collaborations that will address the power concerns. On the other hand, less recent progress has been made in non-MHC factors.

32 in PsA, genome-wide scans in psoriasis itself have mapped a major susceptibility locus to a 60-kb interval telomeric to HLA-C in the MHC known as PSORS175 (Fig. 1). PSORS1 is closely linked to the corneodesmosin (CDSN) gene, 160-kb telomeric of HLA-C, which functions in corneocyte cohesion and desquamation and whose potential identity as PSORS1 is controversial (Fig. 1). 79 Non-Major Histocompatibility Complex Genes CYP2D6 Few candidate genes have been definitively implicated outside the MHC.
