Relevance of a drug target for a disease is often inferred with strong belief but fragile evidence. Here, a program for early identification of human disease-specific drug targets using high-throughput genetic associations is described. Large numbers of well-characterized patients (>1000) and matched controls are screened for genetic associations using several thousand (>7000) single nucleotide polymorphisms from more than 1500 genes. The genes were selected because they are members of target… CONTINUE READING
