BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Studies in animal models and humans implicate cell adhesion molecules in atherogenesis but their role in mediating the risk of myocardial infarction is unclear. The ECTIM (étude cas-temoin de l'infarctus myocarde) extension study was established to determine whether a previously implicated polymorphism of the P-selectin gene was associated with myocardial infarction risk in men and women in Belfast and Glasgow. PATIENTS AND STUDY SETTING: 696 cases with a recent… CONTINUE READING
