This study investigates the potential role of 17 chosen polymorphisms in 15 candidate genes and the risk of myocardial infarction in patients under 45 years of age. The study consists of 271 patients with myocardial infarction and 141 controls. The analysis of genetic polymorphisms was performed using the PCR-RFLP method. Of the chosen polymorphisms, two (Leu125Val PECAM1 and A1/A2 FVII) are related to myocardial infarction and two (C677T MTHFR and 5A/6A MMP3) to advanced stenosis in arterial vessels (> 75%). We also found that the frequency of some combinations among the analyzed genes and environmental factors varied between the patient and control groups.

Buerger's disease (BD) etiologies are poorly understood. Beyond smoking cessation, medical-surgical treatments have limited success. We hypothesized that mutations associated with arterial vasospasm (stromelysin-1 5A/6A, eNOS T-786C) and C677T-A1298C methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) interacted with cigarette-cannabis smoking, reducing vasodilatory nitric oxide (NO), promoting arterial spasm-thrombosis.

The objective of this study was to elucidate the association between the polymorphism of stromelysin-1, also called matrix metalloproteinases-3 (MMP-3), and smoking in the pathogenesis of young acute myocardial infarction (MI). Plaque rupture is well established as a critical factor in the pathogenesis of acute MI. MMP-3 can degrade extracellular matrix and are identified extensively in human coronary atheroslcerotic plaques, and may contribute to the weakening of the cap and subsequent rupture. Read More

Objective: This study compared plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T and A1298C polymorphisms in patients with myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation before undergoing to coronary artery bypass grafting, and in patients who had previously undergone coronary artery bypass grafting.

Method: Seventy patients with myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation, scheduled to undergo coronary artery bypass grafting, were included in the study group, and 70 patients who had previously undergone coronary artery bypass grafting were included in the control group. Genetic polymorphisms were determined using real-time polymerase chain reaction methods. Read More
