    This variant was significantly associated with postfenofibrate change for triglycerides. Subjects bearing minor allele A tend to have higher responsiveness to fenofibrate in lowering TG. A total of 1,327 subjects (639 men and 688 women) from 148 families were genotyped. Of these 1,327 subjects, 861 subjects (427 men and 434 women) went through the fenofibrate trial and had complete lipid phenotype and genotype data.
  • Score: 0.937 (probably damaging)
