Variation at the cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) locus is a
well-known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Wilson et al
(genetic predisposition to hyperlipidaemia in diabetes: the end of
the beginning? J Internal Medicine 1994; 236 (Supp): 53-61) state that
there are observations suggesting that CETP deficiency might be
associated with longevity. However, they do not mention a reference.
Can anyone suggest some articles on this subject?
