Title:
Molecular signatures of cardiovascular disease risk: potential for test development and clinical application. 
Abstract:
Most cardiovascular diseases are multifactorial by etiology. As an example, the development of myocardial infarction is promoted by numerous risk factors, ranging from rather modifiable lifestyle habits (e.g. smoking, physical activity) to genetic predisposition. With respect to the latter, 15 years of candidate gene analyses have failed to explain the molecular basis for the genetic predisposition to myocardial infarction. By contrast, recent genome-wide association studies have identified chro...    »
