Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge, Strangeways Site, Cambridge, United Kingdom
PLoS Med 3:e91. 2006..It has been suggested that polymorphisms in the GST genes are risk factors for lung cancer, but a large number of studies have reported apparently conflicting results...
- Seven haemostatic gene polymorphisms in coronary disease: meta-analysis of 66,155 cases and 91,307 controlsZheng Ye
Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge, Strangeways Site, Wort s Causeway, Cambridge CB1 8RN, UK
Lancet 367:651-8. 2006..We did meta-analyses on seven such haemostatic genetic variants for which the available evidence on each comprises at least 5000 coronary disease cases and at least 5000 controls...
- Association of cholesteryl ester transfer protein genotypes with CETP mass and activity, lipid levels, and coronary riskAlexander Thompson
Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge, Strangeways Research Laboratory, Worts Causeway, Cambridge, England CB1 8RN
JAMA 299:2777-88. 2008..The importance of the cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) pathway in coronary disease is uncertain. Study of CETP genotypes can help better understand the relevance of this pathway to lipid metabolism and disease risk...

Eur J Cancer 41:980-9. 2005..It is conceivable that GSTM1 and GSTT1 null genotypes may thus play a role in leukemogenesis. A review of the 30 case-control studies indicates that greater attention should be paid to the design of future studies...
- Association of apolipoprotein E genotypes with lipid levels and coronary riskAnna M Bennet
Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England
JAMA 298:1300-11. 2007..Previous reviews of associations of apolipoprotein E (apoE) genotype and coronary disease have been dominated by smaller studies that are liable to biases...

MRC Epidemiology Unit, Institute of Metabolic Science, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, U K
Diabetes 63:332-42. 2014..However, a genetic variant that elevated Lp(a) levels was not associated with risk of T2D, suggesting that elevated Lp(a) levels are not causally associated with a lower risk of T2D. ..
