Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: Both asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), which is an inhibitor of endothelial nitric oxide synthase and the fatty acid-binding protein 2 (FABP2) A54T gene polymorphism have been associated with cerebrovascular disease. The objective of the present study was to investigate the role of ADMA and the FABP2 A54T polymorphism in carotid atherosclerosis.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: 54 patients with severe carotid stenosis and 54 matched controls without significant carotid stenosis were compared. ADMA was analysed with an ELISA method. The FABP2 A54T polymorphism was determined with a polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism technique.

RESULTS: Patients with carotid stenosis had higher ADMA levels (0.76 +/- 0.16 micromol/l) than the controls (0.70 +/- 0.14 micromol/l, P < 0,01). Allele and genotype frequencies of the FABP2 polymorphism did not differ between patients and controls.

CONCLUSIONS: ADMA levels in subjects with carotid stenosis are increased which emphasize the role of ADMA as a novel risk factor for atherosclerosis and future cardiovascular risk. The FABP2 A54T polymorphism is not associated with severe carotid stenosis.
