Abstract

Objectives: Elevated homocysteine (Hcy) concentrations have been shown to be a risk factor for atherosclerotic vascular disease and thrombosis. Increased asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) levels have been implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous conditions affecting the cardiovascular system. In this study, the influence of cardiovascular risk factors and other variables on Hcy and ADMA relationship in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) was investigated.
