Abstract

Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) in types I and III procollagen genes were studied in 62 scleroderma patients and 138 healthy controls. Allelic frequencies were determined for each RFLP, and comparisons were made between the 2 populations, stratifying them by race when appropriate. No statistically significant differences were observed for the frequencies of any of the RFLPs studied.
