Genetic Studies Help Clarify the Complexities of Lipid Biology and Treatment.

Abstract

Nearly50yearsago, investigators fromtheFraminghamHeart Study first associated elevated blood cholesterol levels with an increased risk for cardiovasculardisease (CVD).Over theensuing decades, epidemiologic studies deepened the understanding of the disease process. Higher levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) were associated with increased CVD risk… (More)
