Association between an indel polymorphism in the 3'UTR of COL1A2 and the risk of sudden cardiac death in Chinese populations.

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) describes the unexpected natural death from a cardiac cause within a short time period. Compelling evidence suggests the involvement of host genetic factors in SCD etiology. Identification of genetic variations predisposed to SCD enables genetic testing that may contribute to SCD diagnosis and risk stratification. Previous studies… (More)
