International research teams uncover multiple genetic risk factors and demonstrate how a non-coding gene variant can contribute to heart disease.
Scanning the genomes of more than 100,000 people from all over the world, scientists report the largest set of genes discovered underlying high cholesterol and high triglycerides â€” the major risk factors for coronary heart disease, the nation's number one killer.
A global team of researchers co-led by the University of Michigan School of Public Health has discovered or confirmed 95 regions of the human genome where genetic variants are associated with blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which are major indicators of heart disease risk.
Together with their colleagues from the Global Lipids Genetics Consortium, scientists of Helmholtz Zentrum MÃ¼nchen have found 95 gene loci in the human genome, each of which is associated with at least one of the four most important factors of lipoprotein metabolism: total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
Researchers have uncovered 95 genes that are believed to affect blood cholesterol, including a few that are affected by drugs and others that might be the basis of new drugs.
MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Cargill featured a heart-healthy chocolate beverage prototype containing CoroWise(TM) plant sterols at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Food Expo in Chicago earlier this month.
Most people know that high cholesterol levels place them at increased risk for heart disease and stroke.
Thousands of children with high levels of LDL cholesterol are going untreated, as current guidelines exclude as many as 10-percent of those who could benefit from medication.
