Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: The incidence of narcolepsy rose sharply after the swine influenza A (H1N1) vaccination campaign with Pandemrix. Narcolepsy is an immune-related disorder with excessive daytime sleepiness. The most frequent form is strongly associated with HLA-DQB1*06:02, but only a minority of carriers develop narcolepsy. We aimed to identify genetic markers that predispose to Pandemrix-induced narcolepsy.

METHODS: We tested for genome-wide and candidate gene associations in 42 narcolepsy cases and 4981 controls. Genotyping was performed on Illumina arrays, HLA alleles were imputed using SNP2HLA, and single nucleotide polymorphisms were imputed using the haplotype reference consortium panel. The genome-wide significance threshold was p < 5 × 10-8, and the nominal threshold was p < 0.05. Results were replicated in 32 cases and 7125 controls. Chromatin data was used for functional annotation.

FINDINGS: Carrying HLA-DQB1*06:02 was significantly associated with narcolepsy, odds ratio (OR) 39.4 [95% confidence interval (CI) 11.3, 137], p = 7.9 × 10-9. After adjustment for HLA, GDNF-AS1 (rs62360233) was significantly associated, OR = 8.7 [95% CI 4.2, 17.5], p = 2.6 × 10-9, and this was replicated, OR = 3.4 [95% CI 1.2-9.6], p = 0.022. Functional analysis revealed variants in high LD with rs62360233 that might explain the detected association. The candidate immune-gene locus TRAJ (rs1154155) was nominally associated in both the discovery and replication cohorts, meta-analysis OR = 2.0 [95% CI 1.4, 2.8], p = 0.0002.

INTERPRETATION: We found a novel association between Pandemrix-induced narcolepsy and the non-coding RNA gene GDNF-AS1, which has been shown to regulate expression of the essential neurotrophic factor GDNF. Changes in regulation of GDNF have been associated with neurodegenerative diseases. This finding may increase the understanding of disease mechanisms underlying narcolepsy. Associations between Pandemrix-induced narcolepsy and immune-related genes were replicated.

Abstract [en]

Objectives: Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a serious adverse reaction due to flucloxacillin. The pathogenesis is not fully understood. Female sex, age over 60 years, and a longer treatment duration have been suggested to be predisposing factors. Carriers of HLA-B*57:01 have an 80-fold increased risk, but due to the rarity of the reaction, testing of all patients is not cost-effective. We aimed to validate and detect clinical risk factors for flucloxacillin DILI.

Methods: Clinical characteristics of flucloxacillin-treated patients with (n=50) and without DILI (n=2,330) were compared in a retrospective case control study. Cases were recruited from the Swedish database of spontaneously reported adverse drug reactions. Treated controls were selected from the Swedish Twin Registry. Statistical comparisons were made using chi-squared test and logistic regression. The significance threshold was set to P<0.00357 to correct for multiple comparisons. Reliable variables were tested in a multiple regression model.

Results: DILI was associated with female sex, OR 2.79,95% CI 1.50-5.17, P=0.0011, and with a history of kidney stones, OR 5.51, 95% CI 2.21-13.72, P=0.0003. Cases were younger than controls, OR per increase in years 0.91,95% CI 0.88-0.94, P<0.0001, probably due to selection bias. No difference in treatment duration was detected, OR 1.03,95% CI 0.98-1.08, P=0.1790.

Conclusion: We established female sex as a risk factor for flucloxacillin-induced DILI, and a history of kidney stones was identified as a potential risk factor. Clinical risk factors for flucloxacillin-induced DILI could be used to indicate whom to test for HLA-B*57:01 before treatment.

Abstract [en]

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system treated with disease-modifying therapies, including the biologic, interferon-β (IFN-β). Up to 60% of IFN-β-exposed MS patients develop abnormal biochemical liver test results1,2, and 1 in 50 experiences drug-induced liver injury3. Since genomic variation contributes to other forms of drug-induced liver injury4,5, we aimed to identify biomarkers of IFN-β-induced liver injury using a two-stage genome-wide association study. The rs2205986 variant, previously linked to differential expression of IRF6, surpassed genome-wide significance in the combined two-stage analysis (P= 2.3 × 10–8, odds ratio = 8.3, 95% confidence interval = 3.6–19.2). Analysis of an independent cohort of IFN-β-treated MS patients identified via electronic medical records showed that rs2205986 was also associated with increased peak levels of aspartate aminotransferase (P= 7.6 × 10–5) and alkaline phosphatase (P= 4.9 × 10-4). We show that these findings may be applicable to predicting IFN-β-induced liver injury, offering insight into its safer use.

Abstract [en]

Background: Statins are widely used lipid-lowering drugs used for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Statins are known to cause myopathy, an adverse drug reaction with various clinical features rhabdomyolysis.

Objective: To describe clinical characteristics of statin-treated individuals who experienced myopathy and identify risk factors of statin-associated myopathy.

Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on cases of statin-associated myopathy reported to the Swedish Medical Products Agency. Clinical factors were compared between cases and statin-treated controls not diagnosed with myopathy. Statistical methods were univariate and multivariate logistic regression and results were presented as odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence interval (CI). To correct for multiple comparisons, the cutoff for statistical significance was set to P < .0017.

Results: In total, 47 cases of statin-associated myopathy were compared with 3871 treated controls. Rhabdomyolysis was diagnosed in 51% of the cases. Markers for cardiovascular disease were more common in cases than controls. Statistical analysis revealed the following independent risk factors for myopathy: high statin dose (OR = 1.54, calculated using the standard deviation 19.82, 95% CI = 1.32-1.80, P < .0001), and concomitant treatment with fusidic acid (OR = 1002, 95% CI = 54.55-18 410, P < .0001), cyclosporine (OR = 34.10, 95% CI = 4.43-262.45, P = .0007), and gemfibrozil (OR = 12.35, 95% CI = 2.38-64.10, P = .0028).

Abstract [en]

Agranulocytosis is a serious, although rare, adverse reaction to sulfasalazine, which is used to treat inflammatory joint and bowel disease. We performed a genome‐wide association study comprising 9,380,034 polymorphisms and 180 HLA alleles in 36 cases of sulfasalazine‐induced agranulocytosis and 5,170 population controls. Sulfasalazine‐induced agranulocytosis was significantly associated with the HLA region on chromosome 6. The top hit (rs9266634) was located close to HLA‐B, odds ratio (OR) 5.36 (95% confidence interval (CI) (2.97, 9.69) P = 2.55 × 10−8). We HLA‐sequenced a second cohort consisting of 40 cases and 142 treated controls, and confirmed significant associations with HLA‐B*08:01, OR = 2.25 (95% CI (1.02, 4.97) P = 0.0439), in particular the HLA‐B*08:01 haplotype HLA‐DQB1*02:01‐DRB1*03:01‐B*08:01‐C*07:01, OR = 3.79 (95% CI (1.63, 8.80) P = 0.0019), and with HLA‐A*31:01, OR = 4.81 (95% CI (1.52, 15.26) P = 0.0077). The number needed to test for HLA‐B*08:01 and HLA‐A*31:01 to avoid one case was estimated to be 1,500. We suggest that intensified monitoring or alternative treatment should be considered for known carriers of HLA‐B*08:01 or HLA‐A*31:01.
