Evaluation of correlation between serum and salivary fibronectin in myocardial infarction patients in Samarra city/ Iraq

Abstract

This study conducted on 50 patients 18 of them are females and 32 are males their ages ranged between40-73 years diagnosed as myocardial infarction patients in Samara general hospital in Samarra city for the period between 1/9/2019 to 9/6/2020 compared to 25 apparently healthy people as a control group. Serum fibronectin was significantly higher (P≤ 0.05) in patients (5.771±1.461) compared to control (0.374±0.089) ng/ml. Salivary fibronectin was significantly lower (P≤ 0.05) in patients (0.424) compared to control (9.775) ng/ml.Total cholesterol, TG, LDL-c was significantly higher (P≤ 0.05) in patients (230.62±34.989), (217.60±39.894 ، ((152.34±35.319 (compared to control (169.20±21.136), ( 132.92±32.058 69.04±10.510 ( mg/dl respectively. There is positive correlation between serum and salivary fibronectin in patients with MI and between serum fibronectin and serum total cholesterol,There is significantly correlation between serum and TG and LDL-c in control .
