      Anderson, Emma L.; Richmond, Rebecca C.; Jones, Samuel E.; Hemani, Gibran; Wade, Kaitlin H; Dashti, Hassan S.; Lane, Jaqueline; Wang, Heming; Saxena, Richa; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Korologou-Linden, Roxanna; Nielsen, Jonas Bille; Åsvold, Bjørn Olav; Abecasis, Goncalo; Coulthard, Elizabeth; Kyle, Simon D.; Beaumont, Robin N.; Tyrell, Jessica; Frayling, Timothy M; Munafo, Marcus R; Wood, Andrew R; Ben-Shlomo, Yoav; Howe, Laura D; Lawlor, Deborah A.; Weedon, Michael N; Smith, George Davey (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Background It is established that Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients experience sleep disruption. However, it remains unknown whether disruption in the quantity, quality or timing of sleep is a risk factor for the onset ...
    • Mendelian randomization study of maternal influences on birthweight and future cardiometabolic risk in the HUNT cohort 

      Moen, Gunn-Helen; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Willer, Cristen J.; Åsvold, Bjørn Olav; Birkeland, Kåre I.; Wang, Geng; Neale, Michael C.; Freathy, Rachel M.; Smith, George Davey; Lawlor, Debbie A.; Kirkpatrick, Robert M.; Warrington, Nicole Maree; Evans, David M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      There is a robust observational relationship between lower birthweight and higher risk of cardiometabolic disease in later life. The Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) hypothesis posits that adverse ...
    • Separating the genetics of childhood and adult obesity: a validation study of genetic scores for body mass index in adolescence and adulthood in the HUNT Study 

      Brandkvist, Maria Charlotta; Bjørngaard, Johan Håkon; Ødegård, Rønnaug; Åsvold, Bjørn Olav; Smith, George Davey; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Hveem, Kristian; Richardson, Tom G.; Vie, Gunnhild Åberge (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      From a life-course perspective, genetic and environmental factors driving childhood obesity may have a lasting inf luence on health later in life. However, how obesity trajectories vary throughout the life-course remains ...
    • Variation in serum PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9), cardiovascular disease risk, and an investigation of potential unanticipated effects of PCSK9 inhibition 

      Brumpton, Ben Michael; Fritsche, Lars; Zheng, Jie; Nielsen, Jonas Bille; Mannila, Maria Nastase; Surakka, Ida; Rasheed, Humaira; Vie, Gunnhild Åberge; Graham, Sarah E.; Gabrielsen, Maiken Elvestad; Laugsand, Lars Erik; Aukrust, Pål; Vatten, Lars Johan; Damås, Jan Kristian; Ueland, Thor; Janszky, Imre; Zwart, John-Anker; van't Hooft, Ferdinand M.; Seidah, Nabil Georges; Hveem, Kristian; Willer, Cristen; Smith, George Davey; Åsvold, Bjørn Olav (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) inhibitors reduce serum LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol (LDL-C) by increasing uptake in the liver. Although some long-term trials have evaluated their safety, ...
    • Within family Mendelian randomization studies 

      Davies, Neil M.; Howe, Laurence; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Havdahl, Alexandra; Evans, David M.; Smith, George Davey (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Mendelian randomization (MR) is increasingly used to make causal inferences in a wide range of fields, from drug development to etiologic studies. Causal inference in MR is possible because of the process of genetic ...
