In brief: Genetics
Ankylosingvspondylitis is primarily a disease associated with a genetic marker called hl a b27.
This is an inherited factor. There have been no other markers found to indicate a cause of the disease.

In brief: Environement,genetic
We know than genetics paly a big role - especially with teh gentic marker hla-b-27 buy environmental exposures can be important in some of the reactive arthritis diagnoses.
Is there anything you can do to to prevent it? If you ar e genetically prone - we don't know. In some of the reactive arthritis diagnoses - there is previous exposure to certain bacteria that play a role.
