Abstract

T2255C polymorphism (rs2359612) of vitamin K-epoxidoreductase (VKORC1) gene in 118 patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and in 234 healthy people was determined. It was shown that in patients with ACS interrelation of main homozygotes, heterozygotes and minor homozygotes were 27.1 %, 41.5 % and 31.4 % (in control – 37.2 %, 42.7 %, 20.1 %. P = 0,038 by χ2-test). Thus, there is an association between T2255C polymorphism and the development of ACS: the risk of ACS in homozygotes for the minor allele (C/C)is 2.1 times higher than in homozygous for the major allele.
