INTRODUCTION Studies have reported an association between lipoprotein lipase (LPL) gene and myocardial infarction in some populations. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the association of the HindIII polymorphism of the (LPL) gene with myocardial infarction and to explore its potential role in susceptibility in a South Indian population. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We included a total of 412 subjects (202 myocardial infarction patients and 210 age- and sex-matched controls… CONTINUE READING
