Phenotypic and pharmacogenetic evaluation of patients with thiazide-induced hyponatremia (2017)
Journal Article
Ware, J. S., Wain, L. V., Channavajjhala, S. K., Jackson, V. E., Edwards, E., Lu, R., …Glover, M. (2017). Phenotypic and pharmacogenetic evaluation of patients with thiazide-induced hyponatremia. Journal of Clinical Investigation, 127(9), doi:10.1172/JCI89812. ISSN 0021-9738

Thiazide diuretics are among the most widely used treatments for hypertension, but thiazide-induced hyponatremia (TIH), a clinically significant adverse effect, is poorly understood. Here, we have studied the phenotypic and genetic characteristics of... Read More

Journal Article
Miller, S., Henry, A. P., Hodge, E., Kheirallah, A. K., Billington, C. K., Rimington, T. L., …Sayers, I. (2016). The Ser82 RAGE variant affects lung function and serum RAGE in smokers and sRAGE production in vitro. PLoS ONE, 11(10), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0164041. ISSN 1932-6203

Introduction Genome-Wide Association Studies have identified associations between lung function measures and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and chromosome region 6p21 containing the gene for the Advanced Glycation End Product Recepto... Read More

GSTCD and INTS12 regulation and expression in the human lung (2013)
Journal Article
Obeidat, M., Miller, S., Probert, K., Billington, C. K., Henry, A. P., Hodge, E., …Hall, I. P. (2013). GSTCD and INTS12 regulation and expression in the human lung. PLoS ONE, 8(9), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0074630. ISSN 1932-6203

Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) meta-analyses have identified a strong association signal for lung function, which maps to a region on 4q24 containing two oppositely transcribed genes: glutathione S-transferase, C-terminal domain containing (GST... Read More

HTR4 gene structure and altered expression in the developing lung (2013)
Journal Article
Hodge, E., Nelson, C. P., Miller, S., Billington, C. K., Stewart, C. E., Swan, C., …Sayers, I. (2013). HTR4 gene structure and altered expression in the developing lung. Respiratory Research, 14(77), doi:10.1186/1465-9921-14-77. ISSN 1465-9921

Background: Meta-analyses of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) spanning the 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 4 (5-HT4R) gene (HTR4) associated with lung function. The aims of this study were t... Read More

A randomised trial of ondansetron for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea
Journal Article
Garsed, K., Chernova, J., Hastings, M., Lam, C., Marciani, L., Singh, G., …Spiller, R. C. (2013). A randomised trial of ondansetron for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea. Gut, doi:10.1136/gutjnl-2013-305989. ISSN 0017-5749

Background: Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea (IBS-D) is particularly debilitating due to urgency and episodic incontinence. Some 5-hydroxytryptamine 3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonists (5-HT3RAs) have proven effective but have serious side effects.... Read More
