The NEJM published results from two genome-wide association studies for coronary artery disease. Combining genotyping data from the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium study and the German Myocardial Infarction Family Study, researchers confirmed a region on chromosome 9 to be highly associated with coronary artery disease. Overall, the WTCCC showed nine loci that were strongly associated with coronary artery disease, and the combined data found an additional four loci.
