Abstract

A key component of atherosclerosis is inflammation. So, genes encoding inflammatory or antiinflammatory molecules are good candidates for the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), as acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In this study we demonstrated that genetic variations in CCR5 gene affect atherosclerosis and risk of AMI, hence consenting the attainment of longevity.
