    • Exploring causality in the association between circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D and colorectal cancer risk: a large Mendelian randomisation study. 

      He, Y; Timofeeva, M; Farrington, SM; Vaughan-Shaw, P; Svinti, V; Walker, M; Zgaga, L; Meng, X; Li, X; Spiliopoulou, A; Jiang, X; Hyppönen, E; Kraft, P; Kiel, DP; SUNLIGHT consortium; Hayward, C; Campbell, A; Porteous, D; Vucic, K; Kirac, I; Filipovic, M; Harris, SE; Deary, IJ; Houlston, R; Tomlinson, IP; Campbell, H; Theodoratou, E; Dunlop, MG (2018-08-14)
      BACKGROUND: Whilst observational studies establish that lower plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) levels are associated with higher risk of colorectal cancer (CRC), establishing causality has proven challenging. Since ...
    • Mendelian randomisation study of the relationship between vitamin D and risk of glioma. 

      Takahashi, H; Cornish, AJ; Sud, A; Law, PJ; Kinnersley, B; Ostrom, QT; Labreche, K; Eckel-Passow, JE; Armstrong, GN; Claus, EB; Il'yasova, D; Schildkraut, J; Barnholtz-Sloan, JS; Olson, SH; Bernstein, JL; Lai, RK; Schoemaker, MJ; Simon, M; Hoffmann, P; Nöthen, MM; Jöckel, K-H; Chanock, S; Rajaraman, P; Johansen, C; Jenkins, RB; Melin, BS; Wrensch, MR; Sanson, M; Bondy, ML; Turnbull, C; Houlston, RS (2018-02-05)
      To examine for a causal relationship between vitamin D and glioma risk we performed an analysis of genetic variants associated with serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels using Mendelian randomisation (MR), an approach ...
