Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is a multifunctional anti-inflammatory cytokine involved in various physiological and pathophysiological processes including cardiovascular disease. It has been reported that 50-75% of the variation in IL-10 production is genetically controlled. In the present study, the IL-10 -1082A/G (rs1800896) polymorphism was detected in 174(More)
There is an accumulating body of evidence indicating strong association between inflammation and the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation (AF). IL-10 is a multifunctional anti-inflammatory cytokine that down-regulates cell-mediated immune responses and cytotoxic inflammatory responses. The aim of the present study is to investigate the association of IL-10(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs are small, single-stranded, non-protein-coding RNAs of about 22 nucleotides. MicroRNA molecules have been identified to play key roles in a broad range of physiologic and pathologic processes. Polymorphisms in the corresponding sequence space are likely to make a significant contribution to phenotypic variation. A T/C genetic variant(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) not only is an independent risk factor for death but also confers significant risk of morbidity from stroke associated with left atrial thrombus. The association of interleukin 6 (IL-6) polymorphism with thrombus in AF has not been investigated before. We carried out a case-control study in Han Chinese. The IL-6 -634C/G genotypes of(More)
An accumulating body of evidence suggests that slow coronary flow (SCF) phenomenon seems to be an early-form of atherosclerosis and low-grade inflammation plays a major role in the atherosclerotic vascular processes. Interleukin (IL)-10 is a multifunctional cytokine involved in both innate and adaptive immune response. The aim of the present study is to(More)
OBJECTIVE The angiotensin-converting enzyme gene is one of the most studied candidate genes related to atrial fibrillation. Among the polymorphisms of the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene, the 2350 G/A polymorphism (rs4343) is known to have the most significant effects on the plasma angiotensin-converting enzyme concentration. The aim of the present study(More)
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a cytokine involved in different physiologic and pathophysiologic processes including essential hypertension (EH). Associations of the IL-6 promoter region polymorphisms with circulating level of IL-6 have been reported in various studies. We detected the IL-6-597G/A polymorphism in 246 EH patients and 194 healthy controls from(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the prognostic value of admission B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) on outcome for patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). METHODS Blood BNP levels, routine echocardiography and tissue Doppler image were obtained in 162 CHF patients [95 male, mean age: (71.8±3.7) years] at admission. Patients were divided into high BNP (BNP>1500(More)
