Genetic Risk Score for Coronary Disease Identifies Predispositions to Cardiovascular and Noncardiovascular Diseases.

A wide spectrum of CV conditions, including premature death, might develop consecutively or in parallel with CAD for the same genetic roots. In conditions like heart failure, the study found evidence that the CAD-GRS could be used to stratify patients with no or limited genetic overlap with CAD risk. Increased genetic predisposition to CAD was inversely associated with migraine headaches.

CARDIoGRAM celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

It is 10 years since CARDIoGRAM entered the scientific lexicon. It is the acronym for the Coronary ARtery DIsease Genome wide Replication and Meta-analysis, a global consortium that has set new standards in the exploration of the genetics of coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial infarction (MI).
