Coronary artery disease

Description:In a study of 191 coronary artery bypass candidates, investigators paradoxically found and excess of Type O over Type A. When they examined the data more closely, they concluded that that the tendency of Type A to develop blood clots more readily ("thrombotic proneness") caused a poorer prognosis. In essence, the Type As were missing from the study because they had already died in greater numbers, leaving a disproportionate excess of Type Os among the long term survivors.
ABH non-secretors have a higher incidence of heart disease, but paradoxically with the subtypes higher incidence of alcoholism, the effects of alcohol are most protective in this group as well.
