OBJECTIVE: This meta-analysis aims to evaluate the relationships between seven functional polymorphisms in the CETP gene and myocardial infarction (MI) risk.
METHOD: The PubMed, CISCOM, CINAHL, Web of Science, Google Scholar, EBSCO, Cochrane Library, and CBM databases were searched for relevant articles published before March 1st, 2013 without any language restrictions. Meta-analysis was conducted using the STATA 12.0 software.
RESULTS: Nine case-control studies with a total 8,623 MI cases and 8,564 healthy subjects met the inclusion criteria. The results of our meta-analysis suggested that CETP rs708272 (C>T) polymorphism might be correlated with an increased risk of MI, especially among Caucasians. Furthermore, we observed that CETP rs1800775 (C>A) polymorphism might increase the risk of MI. Nevertheless, no similar findings were found for CETP rs5882 (A>G), rs2303790 (A>G), rs1800776 (C>A), rs12149545 (G>A), and rs4783961 (G>A) polymorphisms.
CONCLUSION: The current meta-analysis suggests that CETP rs708272 (C>T) and rs1800775 (C>A) polymorphisms may contribute to MI susceptibility, especially among Caucasians. Thus, CETP rs708272 and rs1800775 polymorphisms may be promising and potential biomarkers for early diagnosis of MI.
