Abstract

Objectives This study aimed to investigate and measure the relationships between the adiponectin levels and oxidized-low densitylipoprotein (Ox-LDL) in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients in holy Kerbala city, Iraq.Methods Fifty-eight patients included in the study. Patients admitted with a diagnosis of ACS and 30 control subjects. Circulatingadiponectin and Ox-LDL were assessed; using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA).Results Adiponectin serum concentrations were signifcantly lower (p < 0.001) in subjects with ACS compared with control subjects.Ox-LDL serum concentrations were signifcantly higher (p < 0.001) in subjects with ACS compared with controls subjects. The ACS patientsshowed a signifcantly higher (p < 0.001) result in total cholesterol and signifcantly lower (p < 0.001) level in HDL-C.Conclusion Serum adiponectin negatively correlated with Ox-LDL level in patient group ACS and the healthy control group.
