AIM: We aimed at evaluation of the possible association of cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) Taq1B polymorphism with the components of metabolic syndrome in a cohort of Egyptian patients compared to their healthy counterparts.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Blood samples were collected for lipid profile, fasting glucose, insulin and routine biochemical tests. The Taq1B genotypes of CETP were determined using RFLP-PCR technique.
RESULTS: The patients group showed a significantly higher B1B1 genotype and lower B2B2 genotype compared to the controls group. Serum HDL-C level was significantly higher in all subjects with the B2B2 genotype compared to those with B1B1 genotype. In the patients group, age positively correlated with cholesterol level, triglycerides, BMI and waist circumference.
CONCLUSION: Egyptian patients affected with metabolic syndrome have a higher prevalence of B1B1 genotype that is associated with lower serum HDL-C levels.
