• Characterising the shared genetic determinants of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and risk-taking 

      Hindley, Guy Frederick Lanyon; Bahrami, Shahram; Steen, Nils Eiel; O'Connell, Kevin Sean; Frei, Oleksandr; Shadrin, Alexey; Bettella, Francesco; Rødevand, Linn; Fan, Chun-Chieh; Dale, Anders; Djurovic, Srdjan; Smeland, Olav Bjerkehagen; Andreassen, Ole (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Increased risk-taking is a central component of bipolar disorder (BIP) and is implicated in schizophrenia (SCZ). Risky behaviours, including smoking and alcohol use, are overrepresented in both disorders and associated ...
    • Extensive bidirectional genetic overlap between bipolar disorder and cardiovascular disease phenotypes 

      Rødevand, Linn; Bahrami, Shahram; Frei, Oleksandr; Chu, Yunhan; Shadrin, Alexey A.; O'Connell, Kevin S.; Smeland, Olav Bjerkehagen; Elvsåshagen, Torbjørn; Hindley, Guy Frederick Lanyon; Djurovic, Srdjan; Dale, Anders; Lagerberg, Trine Vik; Steen, Nils Eiel; Andreassen, Ole Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Patients with bipolar disorder (BIP) have a high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), despite considerable individual variation. The mechanisms underlying comorbid CVD in BIP remain largely unknown. We investigated polygenic ...
    • Genome-wide analysis reveals genetic overlap between alcohol use behaviours, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and identifies novel shared risk loci 

      Wiström, Erik David; O'Connell, Kevin Sean; Karadag, Naz; Bahrami, Shahram; Hindley, Guy Frederick Lanyon; Lin, Aihua; Cheng, Weiqiu; Steen, Nils Eiel; Shadrin, Alexey; Frei, Oleksandr; Djurovic, Srdjan; Dale, Anders M.; Andreassen, Ole A.; Smeland, Olav Bjerkehagen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Background and aim Schizophrenia (SCZ) and bipolar disorder (BD) have a high comorbidity of alcohol use disorder (AUD), and both comorbid AUD and excessive alcohol consumption (AC) have been linked to greater illness ...
    • Polygenic overlap and shared genetic loci between loneliness, severe mental disorders, and cardiovascular disease risk factors suggest shared molecular mechanisms 

      Rødevand, Linn; Bahrami, Shahram; Frei, Oleksandr; Lin, Aihua; Gani, Osman; Shadrin, Alexey A.; Smeland, Olav Bjerkehagen; O'Connell, Kevin; Elvsåshagen, Torbjørn; Winterton, Adriano; Quintana, Daniel; Hindley, Guy Frederick Lanyon; Werner, Maren Caroline Frogner; Djurovic, Srdjan; Dale, Anders Martin; Lagerberg, Trine Vik; Steen, Nils Eiel; Andreassen, Ole Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Clinical and epidemiological evidence suggest that loneliness is associated with severe mental disorders (SMDs) and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, the mechanisms underlying the relationship ...
