Genetic liability to obesity and peptic ulcer disease: a Mendelian randomization study

Zhoubin Li, Heng Chen & Ting Chen
Abstract Background Epidemiological evidence relating obesity to peptic ulcer disease (PUD) has been mixed. Here we sought to determine the causality in the association of obesity with PUD risk using the Mendelian randomization (MR) approach. Methods This study was based on summary-level data for body mass index (BMI), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and PUD derived from large genome-wide association studies (GWASs). Single nucleotide polymorphisms significantly associated with BMI and WHR (P < 5 × 10–8) were...
