PRINCIPATO, MARIO B. et al. Prevalence of Early B-Cell Factor 1 Gene rs4704963 Single Nudeotide Polymorphism (T>C) in a Population of Type 2 Diabetic Patients with Obesity. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2018, vol.86, n.5, pp.8-14. ISSN 1850-3748.

Background: Previous studies established that in a population with exacerbation of type 2 diabetes with obesity (DBT+Ob) suffering from stress, the prevalence of early B-Cell Factor 1 (EBF1) gene rs4704963 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) (T>C) is 16.5%. Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of this SNP in patients with DBT+Ob attending Hospital Ramos Mejía of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires and to ascertain whether this polymorphism is associated with stress or acute coronary events. Methods: An observational, prospective study on the prevalence of rs4704963 SNP was performed in 53 patients with DBT+Ob and body mass index between 28 and 41, seen in Hospital Ramos Mejía for a period of 15 months. Each patient was evaluated with a stressful life events scale and a perceived stress scale. The chisquare test and odds ratio (OR) were used for statistical analysis. Results: A total of 53 patients were included in the study. Mean population age was 60.2±9.77 years and 47.2% were men. Among these patients, 8 (15.1%) presented SNP and all were heterozygous. Fifteen patients (28.3%) had acute ischemic syndrome (AIS), and among these, only one (6.6%) had SNP No statistically significant relationship was found between the presence of SNP and AIS (p=0.282). Fourteen patients (26.4%) presented moderate or severe chronic stress, and there was no relationship between this finding and the presence of SNP (p=0.979). Conclusions: The prevalence of EBF1 gene rs4704963 SNP (T>C) in the DBT+Ob population was 15.1%. No statistically significant association was found between SNP and stress or AIS.
