Abstract

Hyperhomocysteinemia has been identified as an independent risk factor for occlusive vascular diseases. The C667T 5, 10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) genotype is correlated with increased plasma homocysteine levels especially under the condition of low plasma folate level. This is the first report about the frequency of C667T MTHFR in coronary artery disease and normal controls in Taiwan Chinese.
