APOC3 Gene Mutations Associated With Lower Triglycerides and Coronary Risk

APOC3 gene rare mutations were associated with lower triglyceride levels and lower risk for cardiovascular disease in two studies published by The New England Journal of Medicine this week. Rare mutations in the APOC3 gene were shown to be associated with significantly reduced triglyceride levels. Since higher plasma triglyceride levels are associated with higher risk […]
