Cardiovascular consequences of a polygenetic component of blood pressure in an urban-based longitudinal study: the Malmö Diet and Cancer.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A recently published genome wide association study identified 29 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) influencing blood pressure (BP). Case-control studies suggest that a genetic risk score (GRS) based on these 29 SNPs affect the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), but its role for CVD at population level is unknown. Here, we prospectively evaluate the impact of this polygenetic BP component on CVD morbidity and mortality in a large urban-based middle-aged population.
