Bring Out Your PPI Cases

Dr Tariq Ahmad (Gastroenterologist, Exeter) and Mike Delaney (Nephrology, Canterbury) are investigating genome-wide associations for drug-related acute kidney injury. Our drugs of interest are proton-pump inhibitors and 5-ASA derivatives. Please could members of the Renal Association consider acting as Principle Investigators in their units to help facilitate the study. The work would include identifying appropriate cases, completing a case referral form and arranging a blood test for DNA analysis.

For details of the protocol and for support from the Exeter research team please contact: claire.bewshea@nhs.net or claire.bewshea@rdeft.nhs.uk and tariq.ahmad1@nhs.net
