Submitter Supplied Information

The Cholesterol and Pharmacogenetics Study was a 6-week open label, non-randomized study of 40mg/day simvastatin treatment in 335 African-American and 609 Caucasian (944 total) men and women. Plasma lipids and lipoproteins were measured on two occasions prior to treatment and at 4 and 6 weeks of treatment. The study was designed to test for genetic associations with baseline measurements and changes in response to simvastatin treatment. Whole genome genotyping was performed on 592 Caucasian CAP study participants in two stages. In Stage 1, 304 were genotyped for 314,621 SNPs to tag for common genomic variation. In Stage 2, 290 participants were genotyped, including 280 who were genotyped for 620,901 SNPs. Two samples were excluded due to gender discrepancies. PolyA-selected strand-specific RNA-seq libraries were generated from lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) derived from 104 Caucasian and 53 African American CAP participants. The LCLs were exposed to...
