This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Men who smoke are three times more likely to develop coronary heart disease if they carry the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene, according to an eight-year, 3,000-patient UK study. The link between the gene and a high risk of heart disease, by Professor Steve Humphries, of University College London, and colleagues, is described in the July 13 issue of The Lancet. ApoE is thought to be carried by 26% of the UK male population.
