CONTEXT Reduction of gastric acid secretion by acid-suppressive therapy allows pathogen colonization from the upper gastrointestinal tract. The bacteria and viruses in the contaminated stomach have… Expand
Meta-analyses of genome-wide association studies identify multiple loci associated with pulmonary function
Spirometric measures of lung function are heritable traits that reflect respiratory health and predict morbidity and mortality. We meta-analyzed genome-wide association studies for two clinically… Expand
Common variants at ten loci influence QT interval duration in the QTGEN Study
QT interval duration, reflecting myocardial repolarization on the electrocardiogram, is a heritable risk factor for sudden cardiac death and drug-induced arrhythmias. We conducted a meta-analysis of… Expand
Adherence to cardiovascular therapy: a meta-analysis of prevalence and clinical consequences.
AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the extent to which adherence to individual vascular medications, assessed by different methods, influences the absolute and relative risks (RRs) of… Expand
Common Variants in KCNN3 are Associated with Lone Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia. Previous studies have identified several genetic loci associated with typical AF. We sought to identify common genetic variants… Expand
