BACKGROUND Hyperhomocyteinemia (HHcy) is a risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD), and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), methionine synthase (MTR), and methionine synthase reductase (MTRR) polymorphisms may contribute to plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) variation. We investigated the association of polymorphisms 1298A-->C in the MTHFR(More)
Increased plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) levels have been shown to be a risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). The common methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T (MTHFR C677T) polymorphism has been reported to be a strong predictor of mild hyperhomocysteinaemia (HHcy). We assessed whether this mutation was associated with increased risk of CAD(More)
Our data suggest that the hyperhomocysteinemia and/or increased plasma level of lipoprotein Lp(a) are risk factors for coronary heart disease. We investigated 178 patients who underwent complete cardiac examination comprising coronary angiography and biological analysis (CT, HDL-c, LDL-c, TG, and apoAI, apoB, homocysteine and Lp(a)). Patients presenting a(More)
