Background. CHF is a multi-factor disease where both external and genetic factors contribute to the CHF pathogenesis. The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and the sympathetico-adrenal system (SAS) are the major systems participating in the pathogenesis of CHF. Studying effects of gene polymorphism for both individual systems and their combinations may accelerate development of efficient prevention and improve the quality of predicting a possible disease. Aim. To study patterns of allele combinations associated with increased risk for cardiovascular diseases (CVD), polymorphous markers for genes of АСЕ (I / D), angiotensin AGT (M235T), and β2-adrenoceptors ADRB2 (Q27E, G16R) in a group of patients with systolic CHF of ischemic origin as compared to individuals with risk factors (RFs) for CHF. Materials and methods. The study included 234 men residing in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region. The main group consisted of 135 men with FC II–IV systolic CHF of ischemic origin. The reference group consisted of 99 men with one or more RFs for CHF. The molecular and genetic study was performed using the PCR method followed by restriction analysis of obtained fragments. Statistical analysis was carried out using the “SPSS” Ver. 15 software. Results. Initially, a group of alleles was selected in this population: allele D of the ACE gene; allele T of the AGT gene; and alleles 27E and 16R of the ADRB2 gene. Then two groups were formed: group 1 reflected the presence of a studied allele without taking into account carriage of homozygotes or heterozygotes; group II reflected incidence of the number of a studied allele. Significant differences in incidences of the studied alleles were not observed in the group of CHF patients. Similar analysis of distribution was performed for patients of the reference group. Patients of this group were divided into two subgroups based on the presence of absence of IHD. Most of the reference group patients without IHD significantly more frequently (χ²=р<0.05; likelihood ratio = 1.27 (1.01–1.62)) were carriers of all four studied alleles in the heterozygous state as compared to patients with IHD and CHF. Conclusion. Patients with RFs for CHF but without IHD more often carry four alleles (D of the АСЕ gene, 235Т of the AGT gene, and 27E and 16R of the ADRB2 gene) in the heterozygous state than patients with IHD and CHF. Incidence of the studied alleles did not significantly differ in the group of patients with systolic CHF of ischemic origin.
