OMRF researcher finds genetic links for rare and deadly disease
Working with an international coalition of researchers, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation scientist Amr Sawalha, M.D., discovered five genes that could be the cause of Behçet’s disease, a rare and deadly illness. The new finding could help scientists to better understand the disease and lead to a genetic test to diagnose and potentially provide treatments for […]
OMRF scientist finds genetic link between X chromosome and lupus

And though they have searched for a genetic link between the disease and the X chromosome—women carry two, while men carry only one—they’ve not found one. Until now. Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation scientist Amr Sawalha, M.D., has discovered an association between a gene […]
