Genome-wide association studies have identified a region on chromosome 9p that is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The region is also associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D), a risk factor for CAD, although different SNPs were reported to be associated to each disease in separate studies. We have undertaken a case-control study in 4251 CAD cases and 4443 controls in four European populations using previously reported ('literature') and tagging SNPs. We replicated the literature SN...Expand abstract
