Genes differentially expressed after treatment with drug approved for a disease are enriched for genes genetically associated with the same disease. a Boxplots showing distributions of Fisher’s exact test p-values between GWAS disease associations and DEGs after drug treatment for current and other indications. b ROC curve with 95% confidence interval obtained using current indications as positive labels and significance of enrichment between genetic hits in disease and drug transcriptomic profiles as the ranking metric. c Barplot showing breakdown of current drug indications by therapeutic area where there is a significant overlap between GWAS associations and DEGs after drug treatment
