Family-based studies to map susceptibility genes through linkage disequilibrium have been successful in early-onset diseases where parental-proband trios are readily collected, but are believed to be unworkable for late-onset diseases such as coronary artery disease (CAD). PROCARDIS is a European multicentre study that was designed to identify susceptibility genes for CAD. We have tested the transmission of a putatively functional allele, lymphotoxin-α N26 (804A), in more than 400 PROCARDIS… CONTINUE READING
