Study Description

Aspirin is a widely prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used as an effective analgesic and at low doses as anti-platelet drug for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. However, aspirin is associated with a significant incidence of upper gastrointestinal (GI) complications, notably peptic ulceration. This study aims to identify genetic risk factors associated with the pathogenesis of aspirin-induced upper GI ulceration.A cohort of 248 patients with aspirin-induced, endoscopiclly confirmed GI ulceration and 491 controls (ulcer, without aspirin or aspirin without ulcer) were genotyped for 1.524,956 SNPs using the Illumina Omni 2.5 SNP array. A replication cohort (206 NSAID-induced ulcer cases [of which 87 were aspirin] and 309 controls) was subsequently genotyped for identified SNP association signals using Sequenom iPLEX Massarry. Logistic regression analysis of identified two SNP signal with suggestive association with aspirin-induced GI ulceration. A SNP within the EYA1 locus (rs12678747) was found to be associated with aspirin GI ulceration in both the ... (Show More)
