A genome-wide association meta-analysis involving almost one million heart failure cases and controls identified 11 risk loci and helped distinguish potential causal contributors.

Researchers discovered a duplication affecting the RYR2 gene in two families, which may indicate that it is a founder mutation in the Amish population.

The partners are studying wild-type cardiac amyloidosis, a rare condition characterized by the accumulation of abnormal proteins in the heart.

The score's developers also suggest that current guidelines for stroke prevention may not be sufficient for individuals at higher genomic risk for the condition.

New research suggests that a set of common variants on chromosome 22 may influence heart defects associated with a condition called 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

Led by investigators at the University of Oslo, the four-year CoMorMent project is slated to commence next month with a total budget of €6 million.

Individuals with high genetic susceptibility to heart disease but good sleep habits appeared less likely to develop disease than those with poor sleep patterns.

The researchers used the SomaScan platform to measure 5,000 plasma proteins across 17,000 patients and develop protein profiles correlated to 11 health conditions.

Geisinger researchers will work with collaborators at the nonprofit FH Foundation to develop new methods for the identification and cascade testing of FH.

The scientists aim to use single-cell analysis to investigate the role of variation in a gene called ID3 in vascular smooth muscle cells.

Within the program, Ochsner is hoping to improve preventive care in certain cancer and cardiac conditions with information from genetic tests performed by Color.

Hallmarks of the genetic disease, which can result in life-threatening cardiac complications, include progressive weakness and loss of heart muscle.

A Mendelian randomization analysis found visceral fat to be linked to cardiometabolic disease risk, especially type 2 diabetes risk in women.

A European study, published today in NEJM, used a POC, PCR-based system to perform CYP2C19 genotyping to guide platelet inhibitor therapy.

The Medicare contractor has proposed to cover the non-invasive test for certain kidney and heart transplant patients.

With exome sequences for tens of thousands of Finns, researchers identified deleterious variants linked to dozens of clinically relevant quantitative traits.

Yale School of Medicine researchers analyzed patients and families affected by early-onset coronary artery disease to uncover mutations in CELA2A.

Some of the loci suggest potential treatment options with drugs that modulate LDL cholesterol, the LPL pathway, or circulating lipoprotein(a), the researchers said.

Geisinger and UPenn researchers found that Titin truncations revealed by exome sequencing increased DCM risk in those with European but not with African ancestry.
