Somatic DNA Damages in Risk Factors for Coronary Artery Disease: Modifiable and Non-Modifiable

Main Article Content

Ajit V. Sontakke


The most prevalent cause of death among people in the United States is coronary artery disease (CAD), sometimes known as heart disease. Although widespread, it is entirely avoidable. Early screening, diagnosis, and treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) and its risk factors are all possible. The goal is to investigate both the modifiable and non-modifiable somatic DNA damage factors that are associated with CAD risk.
