INTRODUCTION Multiple genetic studies have confirmed association of 8q24 variants with susceptibility to prostate cancer (CaP). However, the risk conferred in men living in Russia is unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this work we studied the association of rs6983267, rs10090154, and rs1447295 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with a risk of CaP(More)
Axonal degeneration is responsible for the progression of the irreversible destruction caused by multiple sclerosis (MS) resulting ultimately in permanent disability. The KIF1B protein, a member of the kinesin family, is necessary for axon growth and myelination in vertebrates. In the recent paper, Aulchenko et al. suggested that the rs10492972[C] variant(More)
Indirect anticoagulants such as warfarin are the ‘gold standard’ for prevention and treatment of thromboembolic complications in patients at risk (in atrial fibrillation of valvular and nonvalvular etiology, the presence of artificial heart valves, orthopedic and trauma interventions, and other pathological conditions). A wide range of doses required to(More)
We studied occurrence of allele variants *1, *2, *3, and *17 of CYP2C19 gene and polymorphic variants of ABCB1 gene in clopidogrel treated patients from West Siberian and Far Eastern regions and determined contribution of these polymorphisms to laboratory efficacy of clopidogrel. In dependence on magnitude of change of platelet aggregation we distinguished(More)
e15180 Background: Genome-wide association studies and subsequent replication studies have shown that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the chromosomal region 8q24 are associated with prostate cancer (PC) susceptibility. We examined the residents of the West Siberian Region of Russia to assess the contribution of SNPs rs6983267 and rs1447295 in the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to investigate the frequency of CYP2C19*2, *3 allelic variants, associated with poor response to clopidogrel, and CYP2C19*17, associated with excessive response to clopidogrel, in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) from Siberia and Moscow regions of Russia. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 512 ACS patients(More)
A total of 45 patients aged 35 to 73 years who had sustained acute myocardial infarction (MI) were studied in a special cardiological unit. On days 1, 5, 14, 28 of hospital stay, each patient underwent measurements of cortisol, insulin, T3 and T4 and calculations of the mathematical clinic severity index after G.I. Marchuk et al. In acute MI, there were(More)
We compared pharmacogenetic (PG) and standard approaches to selection of individual dose of warfarin on 2 groups of patients each comprising 17 persons. In the group with PG selection we took into consideration the result of preliminary genotyping of polymorphisms of VKORC1 and CYP2C9 genes known to be associated with individual warfarin dose. Control of(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of treating acute myocardial ischemic damages depends, to a large extent, on the development of technologies for predicting their course and outcome. The aim of this paper was to explore whether it would be possible to consider the content of free circulating mitochondrial DNA as a danger-associated molecular pattern for assessing(More)
AIM To evaluate prevalence of metabolic syndrome "X" (MS) components in the families of probands and their wives regarding the presence of hyperinsulinemia and in probands' children of both sexes regarding their having vegetovascular dystonia. MATERIAL AND METHODS 92 families were selected by the proband who survived acute myocardial infarction (MI) at(More)
