25846585 the FAM167A-BLK polymorphisms were associated with Chinese PM/DM patients or these patients with ILD, indicating that PM/DM might share common gene with other autoimmune diseases.
25470816 Results support previous findings that vaiants in the RHOB and FAM167A-BLK genes may be associated with susceptibility to systemic sclerosis.
24632671 The observations suggested that C8orf13-BLK, in combination with STAT4, plays a pivotal role in creating genetic susceptibility to polymyositis/dermatomyositis in Japanese individuals.
23899688 SNPs of the FAM167A-BLK region, but not the BANK1 SNPs, were associated with the development of primary Sjogren's syndrome in Han Chinese.
23635951 Strong correlations have been observed between TNFSF4, TNFAIP3 and FAM167A-BLK polymorphisms with primary Sjogren's syndrome in Han Chinese.[FAM167A-BLK]
21480188 These results confirm C8orf13-BLK as a systemic sclerosis risk locus
20861858 EBF1, BLK and TNFSF4 are all involved in B-cell differentiation and activation, and we conclude that polymorphisms in several susceptibility genes in the immune system contribute to the pathogenesis of primary SS.
20861858 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20848568 Observational study and meta-analysis of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20156505 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20131239 Our findings indicate that the rs13277113A allele is associated not only with SLE but also with SSc and that the FAM167A-BLK region is a common genetic risk factor for both SLE and SSc.
19740902 Results indicate the FAM167A-BLK region may be a shared genetic factor for a number of autoimmune diseases in multiple populations, but the genetic contribution may be grater in Asian populations.

18204098 identified and confirmed through replication two new genetic loci for SLE: a promoter-region allele associated with reduced expression of BLK and increased expression of C8orf13 and variants in the ITGAM-ITGAX region
