Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a genetically complex autoimmune disease characterized by loss of immune tolerance to nuclear and cell surface antigens. Previous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) had modest sample sizes, reducing their scope and reliability. Our study comprised 7,219 cases and 15,991 controls of European ancestry, constituting a(More)
AIM Aspirin resistance has an incidence of 5%-65% in patients with ischemic stroke, who receive the standard dose of aspirin, but the platelet function is inadequately inhibited, thereby leading to thrombotic events. Numerous evidence shows that thromboxane A2 receptor (TXA2 receptor, encoded by TBXA2R), lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2,(More)
22 Studies attempting to functionally interpret complex-disease susceptibility loci by GWAS and 23 eQTL integration have predominantly employed microarrays to quantify gene-expression. 24 RNA-Seq has the potential to discover a more comprehensive set of eQTLs and illuminate 25 the underlying molecular consequence. We examine the functional outcome of 39(More)
AIM Cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase (POR) is the only flavoprotein that donates electrons to all microsomal P450 enzymes (CYP), and several POR SNPs have been shown to be important contributors to altered CYP activity or CYP-mediated drug metabolism. In this study we examined the association between 6 POR SNPs and tacrolimus concentrations in Chinese renal(More)
Gefitinib is an essential drug for NSCLC patients harboring EGFR sensitive mutations. The approved dose 250 mg/day is based on limited clinical trials, this research aims to explore the relationship between drug exposure and gefitinib response. C trough of 87 NSCLC patients harboring EGFR sensitive mutations were determined by LC-MS/MS. The median of C(More)
BACKGROUND Fall and serious fall injuries have become a major health concern for elders. Many factors including blood pressure and anti-hypertensive medication application were reported as hazards of fall. The purpose of this study was to determine if age related systemic functional decline related with increased fall risks in elderly patients with(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of p53 rs1042522, MDM2 rs2279744 and p21 rs1801270, all in the p53 pathway, which plays a crucial role in DNA damage and genomic instability, were reported to be associated with cancer risk and pathologic characteristics. This case-control study was designed to analyse the association between these SNPs and(More)
