In an analysis of the possible association of endothelial constitutive nitric oxide synthase (ecNOS) gene polymorphism and plasma nitric oxide levels in patients with acute coronary syndrome, we investigated 106 patients with the syndrome and 100 healthy controls. Genotype was determined using the polymerase chain reaction; plasma nitric oxide levels were(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES Pregnancy associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A), a metalloproteinase plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Recent studies have reported that elevated levels of PAPP-A, signal the onset of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We, therefore, proposed to study the analytical competence of PAPP-A in patients admitted to the(More)
There is a rising trend in the prevalence of insulin resistance among obese, overweight children and adolescents. The serum insulin and its correlation with biochemical, clinical and anthropometric parameters were evaluated in 185 children and adolescents (59 control, 52 obese, 49 overweight, 25 congenital heart disease) of age group 10–17 years. The levels(More)
BACKGROUND An adverse pattern of blood lipids and atherosclerosis begin in childhood. Unfortunately, data for children and adolescents, particularly those in the Indian population, are scarce. The present study aims to evaluate the levels of serum E-selectin in Indian children and adolescents and its correlation with anthropometric and biochemical(More)
