OBJECTIVE The level of C-reactive protein (CRP), an inflammatory marker that predicts future cardiovascular events, is a heritable trait. Our aim was to test the statistical associations between variations in the CRP gene and serum CRP levels in a Taiwanese population with interaction analysis. METHODS A sample population of 617 Taiwanese subjects was enrolled. Five CRP single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) previously reported to be associated with CRP level and with reasonable coverage of… CONTINUE READING
