Study Description

Myocardial infarction (MI) is a common complex disease and the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. The genetic basis of this disease is largely unknown. It has been thought that early-onset MI events would have a substantially greater heritability, thus making DNA collections with younger individuals desirable. More recently, genome-wide association studies have become feasible through the development of whole genome arrays and a large catalogue of common variants reported in the International HapMap database. This study aims to use Affymetrix genotyping platform to do a whole genome scan in 3000 early-onset MI cases and 3000 matched controls from 6 study collection sites.
