26110394 High COL8A1 expression is associated with early loss of kidney function.
24498017 Data indicate that complement factor H (CFH) R1210C and common variants in COL8A1 and RAD51B plus six genes contribute predictive information for advanced macular degeneration (AMD) beyond macular and behavioral phenotypes.
23533600 The results are consistent with the proposal that rare CNVs play a role in TS aetiology and suggest a possible role for rearrangements in the COL8A1 and NRXN1 gene regions.
23512105 In addition, eight genes classified as 'second tier' hits in the original study (PAX7, THADA, COL8A1/FILIP1L, DCAF4L2, GADD45G, NTN1, RBFOX3 and FOXE1) showed evidence of linkage and association in this replication sample.
21139683 The purpose of this study is to evaluate COL8A1 and COL8A2 as candidate genes for thin central corneal thickness in human primary open angle glaucoma patients.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)

17721297 Observational study of genotype prevalence. (HuGE Navigator)
17721297 The absence of pathogenic mutations in COL8A1 and COL8A2 in patients with keratoconus indicates that other genetic factors are involved in the pathogenesis of this corneal ectatic disorder.
16936088 The absence of pathogenic mutations identified in the COL8A1 or COL8A2 genes in affected members of 15 pedigrees with familial FECD (Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy) indicates that other genetic factors are involved.
