From: Detecting responses to treatment with fenofibrate in pedigrees

First Named Author Results
Cantor Genetic screening of ML identifies ANAPC2 and KIAA1804 as Fb responsive; rs3087779 and rs1294198 are meQTL for those genes.
Cherlin LASSO regression on LD-pruned GWAS data provides low prediction power in simulated and real data; increasing samples to 7 K provides detectable signals and reasonable prediction accuracy.
Hsu LMM is the preferable approach when adjusting for family structure.
Wu Genome-wide studies identify 229 cis-meQTL for 610 CpG sites using LMM; rs3733749 and cg00514575, upstream of MGAT1 is strongest signal.
Xia Adding CpG ML to a neural network with SNPs and clinical traits improves prediction of TG response to Fb by 4%.
Xu TG LMM identifies 4 significant SNPs, including rs964184 previously associated with lipid lowering statins.
Yang MACROD2 homozygosity intensity is associated with the TG response to Fb using genome-wide GEE.
Yasmeen Including CpG–SNP interactions improves a KST TG prediction model; previously reported CPT1A is nominally replicated.
