Medical Research News-December 3rd, 2012
This study discussed the recent genetic study into Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and it's main complication: Heart Attacks.
I thought it was interesting that this genetic study was the largest to date. I figured, as genetics seem to be followed closely in modern scientific research and heart attacks are relatively common, that research into this relationship would have been of been a bigger priority/of more interest to those in the field.
-outcome of study-
(-They identified 15 genetic regions newly associated with the disease-)
(-The team identified a further 104 independent genetic variants that are very likely to be associated with the disease-)
