Two chemokine receptor CX3CR1 gene variants, V249I and T280M, have been implicated in coronary artery diseases (CAD). Currently no consistent effect has been revealed and their role in cardiovascular disease is still conflicting. In the present study the association of CX3CR1 genotypes with CAD and myocardial infarction (MI) was investigated in the Ludwigshafen Risk and Cardiovascular Health (LURIC) cohort, including 3316 individuals in whom cardiovascular disease angiographically has been… CONTINUE READING
