OBJECTIVES Recently, several genes have been introduced as potential genetic markers for diabetes mellitus and coronary artery diseases (CAD). METHODS In this case-control study, the associations of rs2241766 T/G of ADIPOQ, rs9289231 T/G of KALRN, and rs9939609 A/T of FTO polymorphisms with genetic susceptibility to CAD in type 2 diabetic (T2D) patients(More)
Several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in lipid transport genes have been shown to be associated with premature coronary artery disease (PCAD). The scavenger receptor BI (SCARB1) is a key component of the reverse cholesterol transport and lipid metabolism. We aimed to examine the relationship between the rs5888 SNP within SCARB1and the risk of(More)
OBJECTIVES The presence of Factor V Leiden (FVL) is proposed to be associated with a higher risk for arterial thrombosis. The aim of this study was to examine a relationship between FVL with the presence and severity of angiographically determined coronary artery disease (CAD). DESIGN AND METHODS In this case-control study, 1083 patients having(More)
OBJECTIVE The atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) gene expression and some of its related single-nucleotide polymorphisms have been well established as a characterized biomarker of cardiovascular diseases. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the potential association between one of the introduced ANP gene polymorphisms of 2238 T/C (rs5065) with coronary(More)
BACKGROUND The study of the association between genotype and phenotype is of great importance for the prediction of many diseases and pathophysiological conditions. The relationship between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion/ deletion (I/D) polymorphism and pathological processes such as coronary artery disease (CAD) has been investigated(More)
The effect of human cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) expression on atherogenesis is still under debate. The rs5882 (I405V) polymorphism affect CETP function. We aimed to examine the relationship between the rs5882 polymorphism and the risk of angiographically determined coronary artery disease (CAD). To define premature CAD (PCAD), an age cutoff of(More)
BACKGROUND Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Genetic variations play a major role in the process of atherosclerosis. Recently, rs9289231 genetic variations of the Kalirin gene (KALRN) on chromosome 3q21.2 have been introduced as potential genetic markers for coronary artery disease (CAD). OBJECTIVE In this(More)
Background: The C1019T polymorphism of the connexin-37 (GJA4) gene is a single-nucleotide polymorphisms involved in atherosclerotic plaque rupture and atherosclerosis predisposition. We examined the association between the C1019T polymorphism of the GJA4 gene and the occurrence of myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with premature coronary artery disease(More)
BACKGROUND A number of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) gene polymorphisms has been identified which may be probably related to premature myocardial infarction (MI). OBJECTIVE We assessed the relationship between the two polymorphisms of the MMP9 gene including R279Q and C1562T and occurrence of premature MI. METHODS The study has two phases including a(More)
BACKGROUND Bleeding episodes commonly occur in patients on warfarin treatment even in those within therapeutic range of international normalized ratio (INR). The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of the 8 examined polymorphisms on the risk of bleeding complications in a sample of Iranian patients. METHODS A total of 552 warfarin(More)
