NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium has finished enrolling two studies investigating genetic markers linked to drug-induced liver injury and hypersensitivity reactions, and it has launched a new study focused on finding markers of treatment-related inf
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium today said that it will collaborate with scientists at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy on research into the genetics behind drug-induced renal inju
The iSAEC this week announced a partnership with Shanghai Jaio Tong University to study serious drug reactions in Chinese populations, expanding the group's understanding of the impact of ethnic diversity on genomically influenced adverse events with a strong immunological underpinning.
Nine members of the HMO Research Network "will use detailed clinical profiles to search for potential subjects to enroll into … serious adverse events research projects using their electronic medical record databases," iSAEC said in a statement.
In order to more comprehensively analyze genetic variants associated with adverse reactions to drugs, the SAEC launched two pilot projects to explore exome sequencing earlier this year, and is currently organizing a third.
