OBJECTIVES We investigated the association between insertion/deletion polymorphism of the angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) gene, the presence and extent of coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction. BACKGROUND The D allele of the ACE gene has been associated with coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction, but this association has been challenged in epidemiological studies. METHODS Nine hundred and sixty-nine men and 341 women undergoing coronary angiography were… CONTINUE READING
