We investigated whether C(-260)-->T polymorphism in the promoter of the CD14 monocyte receptor gene predisposed to coronary atherosclerosis and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in Japanese men. The frequencies of T allele and T/T homozygotes in patients with AMI were significantly higher than in controls and in patients with angina without prior AMI, suggesting that the CD14 promoter polymorphism is associated with AMI rather than with coronary atherosclerosis, and this polymorphism may be one… CONTINUE READING
