Comment: Family-based analysis of susceptibility loci for polycystic ovary syndrome on chromosome 2p16.3, 2p21 and 9q33.3. Zhao H et al. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine-metabolic disorder. A previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) identified five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) which were independently associated with PCOS in Han Chinese. To overcome population strati?cation, a family-based analysis was conducted to validate whether these five SNPs are associated with PCOS.
