SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--Genetic testing has shed new light on the deaths of nearly 500 young Australians and New Zealanders who died from sudden cardiac death in a 3-year period, the New England Journal of Medicine reports today.

“Sudden cardiac death in children and young adults has a devastating impact on families, care providers and the community,” says Professor Chris Semsarian, who led the multinational study.

“It’s a tragedy that claims the lives of two to three young Australians each week.
