AIMS We previously reported the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the lymphotoxin alpha (LTα) gene with susceptibility to acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and increased mortality after discharge. In the present study, we investigated whether the adverse effect of LTα C804A polymorphism on mortality could be pharmacologically modified by… CONTINUE READING
