Title:
[Importance of modern genome-wide studies for the risk of myocardial infarction]. 
Abstract:
The individual genetic susceptibility is a cornerstone in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). The search for the genetic background and the subsequently altered molecular mechanisms has been ineffective for several years. The increase in genome-wide association studies in recent years has changed the scenario and more than 40 variants have so far been identified to be highly significantly associated with CAD and the risk of myocardial infarction (MI). Whereas most of these finding...    »
