Using a derivation cohort (N=349), we developed the first warfarin dosing algorithm that includes recently discovered polymorphisms in VKORC1 and CYP2C9 associated with warfarin dose requirement in African Americans (AAs). We tested our novel algorithm in an independent cohort of 129 AAs and compared the dose prediction to the International Warfarin(More)
AIM Evidence supporting improved outcomes for small cell lung cancer (SCLC) in recent decades is limited. This study aimed to identify patterns of care and survival over two time periods; 1 January 1987 to 31 December 1996 (cohort A) and 1 January 1997 to 31 December 2006 9 (cohort B). METHODS Patients' characteristics, management and outcome data were(More)
We report a prospective study on the use of sublingual glyceryl trinitrate at Caesarean section to induce uterine relaxation; 23 women were entered into the study with both emergency and elective cases considered. A metered dose spray was used to deliver a dose of 400 or 800 microgrammes of glyceryl trinitrate to the women. There were no major side-effects(More)
Essentials Genetic variants controlling gene regulation have not been explored in pharmacogenomics. We tested liver expression quantitative trait loci for association with warfarin dose response. A novel predictor for increased warfarin dose response in African Americans was identified. Precision medicine must take into account population-specific variation(More)
