INTRODUCTION: Since atherosclerosis may in part be an inflammatory disease, circulatory factors related to inflammation may be predictors of coronary artery disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the level of some circulating biomarkers and the extent of coronary artery disease.
METHODS: Blood samples were taken from 128 patients with stable forms of coronary heart disease. Macrophage chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), matrix-metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3), soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L) and soluble tumour necrosis factor receptor-2 (sTNFR2) were measured by ELISA. Coronary angiography and grading with the SYNTAX score followed.
RESULTS: There was no significant interdependence of circulating MCP-1, sCD40L, sTNFR2 levels and SYNTAX score. MMP-3 levels were significantly different in subgroup with coronary artery disease (SYNTAX score > 0): 38.1 µg/l (13.6; 84.1) and subgroup without coronary artery disease (SYNTAX score = 0): 20.4 µg/l (13.1; 82.8), p=0.001. According to the Spearman correlation coefficient there was significant association between MMP-3 level and SYNTAX score (0.358, a=0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest association between the extent of coronary artery disease and circulating MMP-3. We failed to demonstrate any association with the other investigated biomarkers.
