Arg399Gln Polymorphism of the XRCC1 Gene is Associated with Coronary Artery Disease in a Turkish Population

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.057
Pages: 
610–15
Synopsis: 
This is the first study investigating the association between XRCCI polymorphisms and coronary artery diseases (CAD) related to demographic parameters in the Turkish population. Genotypes were detected by PCR-RFLP. XRCCI Arg399Gln ploymorphism has been found to be statistically significant for CAD.

Comparative Evaluation of Dyslipaedemia in Obese and Diabetic Patients in Rural and Urban Areas in Lahore, Pakistan

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.327
Synopsis: 
The present study indicated that combined obesity and diabetes were the major cause of dyslipaedemia and coronary artery disease (CAD) followed by obesity and diabetes. Moreover, the risk of dyslipaedemia and CAD in the urban population, was not significantly different from the rural population.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Obesity and diabetes mellitus are interconnected conditions that share a number of pathophysiological mechanisms such as dyslipidemia leading to cardiovascular complications. The present study was conducted to determine the individual and combined effect of diabetes mellitus and obesity on dyslipidemia and ultimately on silent coronary artery disease (CAD).

Atherosclerosis and Liver Function Tests in Coronary Angiography Patients

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.192
Pages: 
333–7
Synopsis: 
This cross-sectional study hypothesized the possibility that liver function test variations in the normal range might be meaningfully associated to coronary artery disease.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Elevated aminotransferase levels indicating liver function, even in the normal range, have attracted great concern as potential novel markers of cardiovascular risk assessment. We hypothesized the possibility that liver function test variations in the normal range might be meaningfully associated to coronary artery disease (CAD).

Analysis of the Clinical Characteristics of Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome in Different States of Renal Function

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.392
Pages: 
357–61
Synopsis: 
This is a retrospective analysis of the clinical data of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who had coronary angiography in order to investigate the clinical characteristics of the patients with ACS and chronic kidney disease, providing the theory support for the clinical diagnosis and treatment of these high-risk patients with ACS.

Caveolin-1 Polymorphisms in Coronary Artery Disease

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.372
Synopsis: 
Coronary atherosclerosis is a major cause of mortality. T29107A specific genotype of Caveolin-1 may be linked with coronary artery disease pathogenesis. Utility of this polymorphic variant as a diagnostic or prognostic marker in CAD warrants further trials on larger series.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To investigate the associations of G14713A and T29107A polymorphic variants of Caveolin-1 with coronary artery disease (CAD).
