Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a movement disorder with prominent tau neuropathology. A genome wide association study of PSP was performed to identify genes that modify risk for this primary tauopothy. A two-stage analysis was performed to maximize efficiency while maintaining power. Stage 1 and Stage 2 are comprised of autopsied cases. While controls were used in the analysis, only genotypes for cases are provided here.
Stage 1: 1,112 Cases
Stage 2: 131 Cases
Stage 1- 561,882
Stage 2- 5,283
