NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A team from the UK has demonstrated the feasibility of finding pathogenic and likely pathogenic mutations in individuals with autoinflammation and vasculitis using custom, targeted gene panel sequencing.

Researchers from the University College London and elsewhere came up with two different vasculitis and inflammation panels, dubbed VIP1 and VIP2, to sequence more than 100 selected genes in 72 individuals with known or suspected monogenic autoinflammatory conditions.
