Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 4G4G genotype is associated with myocardial infarction but not with stable coronary artery disease

Abstract

A case control study was conducted to test the hypothesis that plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 (PAI-1) 4G/5G gene polymorphism confers an increased risk for myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with known coronary atherosclerosis. One hundred fifty-six consecutive patients who presented with acute MI and 111 stable coronary artery disease (SCAD… (More)
