NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers led by a team at the University of Bristol in the UK have uncovered nearly 100 genetic variants that influence the risk of developing mouth ulcers, also known as canker sores.

About a quarter of young adults and an even higher portion of children develop canker sores, and while some result from trauma or autoimmune or inflammatory conditions, the origins of other sores are unclear. Previous studies, though, have suggested a genetic influence.
