Bone mineral density (BMD) is a complex trait with high missing heritability. Numerous evidences have shown that BMD variation has a relationship with coronary artery disease (CAD). This relationship may come from a common genetic basis called pleiotropy. By leveraging the pleiotropy with CAD, we may be able to improve the detection power of genetic(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical and epidemiological findings point to an association between type 2 diabetes (T2D) and low birth weight. However, the nature of the relationship is largely unknown. The aim of this study was to identify novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in T2D and birth weight, and their pleiotropic loci. METHODS A pleiotropy-informed(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association of diabetes mellitus(DM) with colorectal cancer. METHODS Case-control study was performed to compare 486 patients with colorectal cancer (study group) and 533 patients without colorectal cancer (control group) in the Affiliated Nanhai Hospital of Southern Medical University between 2006 and 2009. RESULTS The(More)
Epidemiological and clinical evidences have shown that bone mineral density (BMD) has a close relationship with breast cancer (BC). They might potentially have a shared genetic basis. By incorporating information about these pleiotropic effects, we may be able to explore more of the traits’ total heritability. We applied a recently developed conditional(More)
There are co-morbidity between osteoporosis (OP) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Some genetic risk factors have been identified for these two phenotypes respectively in previous research; however, they accounted for only a small portion of the underlying total genetic variances. Here, we sought to identify additional common genetic loci associated with OP(More)
BACKGROUND Both type 2 diabetes (T2D) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) occur commonly in the aging populations and T2D has been considered as an important risk factor for AD. The heritability of both diseases is estimated to be over 50%. However, common pleiotropic single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)/loci have not been well-defined. The aim of this study is(More)
