Duke and the International Serious Adverse Event Consortium to partner on research
Date:1/27/2010

in HLA region (Chromosome 6) consistent with a proposed immunological mechanism as an important causal factor associated with CIA. The Duke-SAEC plans to expand on these data by conducted more extensive studies of CIA using state-of-the-art whole genome sequencing techniques.

"Our genetic research on both drug-induced liver injury and serious skin rashes points to a strong role of the immune system in contributing to these adverse responses." said Arthur L. Holden, Chairman of the SAEC. "By researching the genetics of drug induced CIA, we hope to further our understanding into the genetics of immunologically mediated adverse drug responses. Our collaboration with Duke University's Center for Human Genome Variation represents our first pilot to use whole genome sequencing technology to better understand the role of rare genetic variation in such events."

"For many patients Clozapine is the most effective drug available, but its use is constrained by the possibility of this serious adverse event requiring intrusive monitoring programs." said David Goldstein, PhD, Professor of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology at Duke University. "We hope that understanding the genetics of CIA will not only reduce its occurrence, but also allow wider use of Clozapine."
