1. There is a familial tendency to abdominal aortic aneurysms. We have followed up a previous report of a weak association between the haptoglobin 2-1 phenotype and aortic aneurysm and investigated polymorphisms of the haptoglobin gene and neighbouring cholesterol ester transfer protein gene on the long arm of chromosome 16 in patients with atherosclerotic abdominal aortic aneurysm, patients with stenosing aortic atherosclerosis and healthy control subjects. The protein polymorphism of… CONTINUE READING
