Researchers are improving risk prediction for common chronic diseases using genetic data. These ‘polygenic risk scores’ can help personalize preventive measures and could soon become part of routine healthcare practice, once some limitations are overcome. Need more information about this research?
Type 2 diabetes increases the risk of cardiovascular and renal complications, but early risk prediction can lead to timely intervention and better outcomes. Through summary statistics of meta-analyses of published genome-wide association studies performed in over 1.2 million of individuals, we combined 9 PRS gathering genomic variants associated to cardiovascular and renal diseases and their […]
