Polygenic Risk Score Identifies Individuals at Risk of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm
James P. Pirruccello, MD, Patrick T. Ellinor, MD, PhD, Mark Lindsay, MD, PhD, and colleagues used artificial intelligence to reveal the genetic basis of aortic size variation, then built a polygenic risk score that predicted future risk of thoracic aortic aneurysm. Their findings may also point to new therapeutic targets.
