BACKGROUND Polymorphisms of the beta fibrinogen gene have been shown to affect plasma fibrinogen levels and the risk of peripheral arterial disease. We now present the results of a detailed analysis of the beta fibrinogen gene in relation to plasma fibrinogen and to the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) in the ECTIM Study. METHODS AND RESULTS Ten polymorphisms of the beta fibrinogen gene, including five new polymorphisms identified by single… CONTINUE READING
