Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 and apolipoprotein E gene polymorphisms and diabetic angiopathy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A point mutation in the plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) gene and a three-allelic variation in the apolipoprotein-E (ApoE) gene have been suggested as risk factors for the development of diabetic micro- and macrovascular complications.
