Scientists find new marker for atherosclerosis:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

In a finding that could lead to a new genetic test for cardiovascular disease, US researchers have linked a gene to the increased risk of atherosclerosis. In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (January 1), the investigators show that a modified version of a gene called 5-lipoxygenase speeds the development of the disease in 5% of the population. The marker could be used to provide better diagnosis, prevention and treatment, said researcher Hooman Allayee at the David Geffen School of Medicine at University College of Los Angeles.
