Final Report - HYPERGENES (European Network for Genetic-Epidemiological Studies: building a method to dissect complex genetic traits, using essential hypertension as a disease model)

Project ID: 201550
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the HYPERGENES project which focused on the definition of a comprehensive genetic epidemiological model of complex traits like Essential hypertension (EH) and intermediate phenotypes of hypertension dependent / associated target organ damages as well as other endophenotypes as the pharmacogenomics pattern of two drugs widely used in EH, namely hydrochlorothiazide and losartan. HYPERGENES was a research collaborative project financed by the European Commission (EC) under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and its activities were structured in three steps: discovery, validation, and dissemination and results exploitation) to be realised in four years.

This report provides an overview of the technical and scientific objectives of the project, analyses the work performed during the three steps and also describes the results and potential impact.
