Additive effect of multiple genetic variants on the risk of coronary artery disease.

Rev Esp Cardiol. 2010 Aug;63(8):925-33, PMID: 20738937

Coronary artery disease (CAD) has a substantial genetic component and, in recent years, a number of genetic variants associated with the disease have been identified. The objective of this study was to evaluate the magnitude of the association between a genetic risk score, which is based on the accumulated number of risk alleles in all genetic variants of interest, and the presence of CAD.
