Abstract

The infectious agents involvement in the physiopathology of arterioscleroses has been demonstrated in recent studies. However, the mechanism they participate is not clear. Recently, studies showed the involvement of Toll Like Receptors (TLR) through inflammatory response to microorganisms, leading the endotelial injury; therefore, the structural modifications of these receptors can be involved in the different inflammatory response and a higher susceptibility of infections. The aim of this study is to evaluate the involvement of the infectious agents in the inflammatory response through TLRs in acute myocardial infarction and to evaluate the possible mechanism between the Toll-like receptor 2 Arg753Gln, Toll-like receptor 4 Asp299Gly/Thr399Ile polymorphisms and their respective activity, as well as the susceptibility to develop atherosclerotic plaque. This study will be carried out with patients that had acute myocardial infarction and individuals without evidence of cardiovascular illnesses. The TLR’s expression and polymorphism will be performed by real time PCR using peripheral blood cells. The plasma IgM and IgG anti-C. pneumoniae and anti-M. pneumoniae, the Protein C ultrasensible reactive (PCRus) and interleucina-6 (IL-6) concentrations will be determinate by immunochemistry methods. The result of this research will contribute to understand the involvement of the infectious agents and its relation with acute myocardial infarction. (AU)
