BACKGROUND AND AIM Genetic variation in the estrogen receptor-gene (ERalpha) may influence the risk of cardiovascular diseases in postmenopausal women. This effect, at least in part, may be dependent on the decrease in expression of injury and inflammatory markers in the vascular wall. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between ERalpha PvuII and XbaI polymorphisms and serum levels of soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (sVCAM-1), soluble intercellular adhesion… CONTINUE READING
