Notes Amyloidosis, Finnish type is also called Familiar Amyloidosis, Finnish type (FAF).

The establishment of this gene variant database (LSDB) was supported by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement nÂș 200754 - the GEN2PHEN project.

This database was initially part of the Finnish Disease Resource (FinDis; Polvi et al: Hum Mutat. 2013:34:1458-66).
Date created August 30, 2012
