Increased coronary heart disease in Japanese-American men with mutation in the cholesteryl ester transfer protein gene despite increased HDL levels.

J. Clin. Invest. 1996 Jun 15;97(12):2917-23.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Plasma high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels are strongly genetically determined and show a general inverse relationship with coronary heart disease (CHD).
