First signal:

  • 1 year after Celecoxib

  • 8 months after Rofecoxib

Effect on patient age l.jpg
Effect on patient age 0.1 to 0.9)

  • Negative association between mean age at MI and prescription volume

  • Spearman correlation -0.67, P<0.05

I2b2 test relnet project l.jpg
I2B2: Test RelNet Project 0.1 to 0.9)

  • Correlate available GEO expression data for GPL96 platform containing expressions for more than 22K human genes

  • Number of gene pairs for this gene chip: ~ 250 Million

  • Multi-threaded application to run on the high-performance Cluster environment from HP

  • Bottleneck: the back-end Database

  • Current, fine-tuned version of the application takes about 2-3 months to complete one data set calculation

Obesity l.jpg

Recurrent themes l.jpg
Recurrent Themes 0.1 to 0.9)

  • Access to large numbers of phenotyped specimens

  • Inadequacy of informatics at the cutting edge

    • Inadequacy of software solutions alone

  • A persistent multidisciplinary requirement

Aims: 0.1 to 0.9)

  • Identify a cohort of patients with TRD, and a matched cohort with SSRI-responsive MDD.

    • Data-mining tools

    • Natural language processing

  • Conduct the first genomewide association study of TRD.

  • Scan computerized medical records (DataMart) 0.1 to 0.9)

    • ICD9 RA x 3 plus one of:

      • CCP or RF

      • Erosions on x-ray

      • DMARD treatment

  • Crimson “discarded” blood samples (cases and controls)

  • CCP on all samples (and bank serum)

  • DNA on all samples for genetic studies

adds >95% specificity

  • Knockouts

    • Insulin receptor

    • Insulin receptor substrates

    • Leptin

    • PGC1A

  • Environmental

    • High fat diets

    • Drug treatments (Streptozotocin)

Three functional sets are consistently over represented in disease models l.jpg
Three Functional Sets Are Consistently Over-represented In Disease Models

  • Insulin signaling, interleukins, and nuclear receptors.

  • Insulin signaling is consistent with the given disease models. Was not identified using standard techniques.

  • Interleukins and nuclear receptors consistent with the inflammation and disordered metabolism associated with type 2 diabetes.

Insulin signaling


Nuclear receptors: 31 of 67.

Interleukins: 38 of 67.

Insulin signaling: 45 of 67.
