Early onset (premature) coronary artery disease (EOCAD) is known to have a particularly strong genetic component. However, the actual genes leading to this increased risk of CAD remain obscure. METHODS The primary goal of the Genetics of Early Onset Cardiovascular Disease (GENECARD) study is to perform a genetic linkage study in 920 families with at least 1 sibling… CONTINUE READING
