What do customers and researchers say about us?

  • “When exploring the DNA methylation of Cri du Chat patients, DISGENET helped me find interesting connections between genes with DNA methylation changes in the promoter and disease phenotypes. This analysis was suggestive of the DNA methylation itself having a role in developing the characteristics of this understudied rare disease.”​

    Petter Holland, PhD​

    Researcher at Oslo University Hospital, Norway​

  • “We use DISGENET to search for variants that cause rare diseases. The most difficult part of variant searching is finding appropriate references and presenting evidence, and DISGENET’s large and well-structured database makes it easy to find.​”

    June-Young Koh​

    Chief Research Officer & Head of RARE TFT, Inocras​

  • “DISGENET has been a game-changer in our research endeavors. Our project revolves around understanding the consequences of protein misfolding, a phenomenon where proteins fail to adopt their native, functional structure, thereby impacting biological processes and contributing to disease pathology. We wholeheartedly recommend DISGENET to other researchers and colleagues working in similar domains.”​

    Research Assistant, Pennsylvania State University​

  • Anticipating Drug Toxicity: data-driven drug safety with DISGENET

    Key points What is flupirtine? Flupirtine, an aminopyridine introduced in 1984 as a non-opioid analgesic for acute and chronic pain, embarked on a tumultuous journey within the medical landscape. Initially approved for broad pain management, its trajectory shifted in 2013 due to concerns over liver toxicity. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) limited its use to […]

  • Genetics for drug and chemical risk assessment

    In recent years, there has been an increasing appreciation of the need to consider variability in human populations in evaluating health risks for new and existing chemicals. Recent policies such as The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the twenty-first Century Act (2016) require the US Environmental Protection Agency to evaluate new and existing toxic chemicals with explicit […]

  • Genetic support for FDA approvals in 2021

    Key points Human genetics and FDA drug approvals in 2021 There is compelling evidence of the value of incorporating genetic information in the drug development process. A drug target supported by genetic evidence has a 2-fold higher probability of successful clinical development compared to those targets with no genetic support [1]. A systematic analysis of FDA […]
