Hypertension continues to be a major risk factor for global mortality, and recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have expanded in size, leading to the identification of further genetic loci influencing blood pressure. ...
Meta-analysis of up to 622,409 individuals identifies 40 novel smoking behaviour associated genetic loci.
(Springer Nature, 2019-01-07)
Smoking is a major heritable and modifiable risk factor for many diseases, including cancer, common respiratory disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Fourteen genetic loci have previously been associated with smoking ...
Protein-coding variants implicate novel genes related to lipid homeostasis contributing to body-fat distribution.
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2019-02-18)
Body-fat distribution is a risk factor for adverse cardiovascular health consequences. We analyzed the association of body-fat distribution, assessed by waist-to-hip ratio adjusted for body mass index, with 228,985 predicted ...
