abstract

  • Dietary intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids significantly modifies the effect of a leukotriene haplotype on carotid artery hypertrophy but not atherosclerosis in American Indians, independent of established cardiovascular risk factors. Replication of nutrigenetic interaction in two distinct ethnic groups suggests the robustness and generalizability of our findings to diverse populations.
