Journal Article
Went, M., Sud, A., Speedy, H., Sunter, N. J., Försti, A., Law, P. J., …Houlston, R. S. (2019). Genetic correlation between multiple myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia provides evidence for shared aetiology. Blood Cancer Journal, 9(1), doi:10.1038/s41408-018-0162-8

The clustering of different types of B-cell malignancies in families raises the possibility of shared aetiology. To examine this, we performed cross-trait linkage disequilibrium (LD)-score regression of multiple myeloma (MM) and chronic lymphocytic...
