Description

Description

Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and autism have been found to be associated with autoimmune (Al) diseases in several studies. Record linkage in the entire population of 5 million persons in Denmark will be used to study relative risk for psychiatric disorders for those with prior Al diseases or their relatives, as well as consequences of psychiatric disorders and their treatments, for Al and other diseases. Results will provide clues to etiology of the psychiatric disorders, help prioritize inquiry into their possible autoimmune basis, provide unprecedented data on the prevalence and comorbidity of autoimmune diseases, and suggest parallel etiologies in both psychiatric and autoimmune diseases.
