Identification of genetic loci and pathways underlying hidradenitis suppurativa risk

Hidradenitis suppurativa (also named: acne inversa) is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that causes painful lumps to form under the skin usually in areas where skin rubs together such as in the armpits, groin, buttocks and under breasts. The overall scientific objective of this study is to identify and validate genetic factors associated with the risk of hidradenitis suppurativa, with the long-term goal of uncovering new therapeutic targets.
