Title: Evaluation of interleukin-17 receptor (IL-17RA) gene expression in PBMCs of patients with premature coronary artery disease

Abstract: OBJECTIVES: Present study has been carried out to analyze the IL-17R gene expression in PBMCs of patients with premature coronary artery disease (CAD) in comparison to normal controls.
BACKGROUND: Premature CAD results in disability and lack of quality of life over the years and consequent mortality. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has global distribution. In 2022, CAD is the leading cause of mortality in the United States and Iran. IL-17 cytokine family plays an important role in promoting inflammation and producing pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, and matrix metalloproteinases.
METHODS: Entirely, 60 subjects were entered into this examination. The case group consisted of 30 subjects with CAD as well as the control group which consisted of 30 healthy persons. The real-time quantitative reverse transcription PCR assay was used to find out, the relative expression (fold) level of IL-17R gene.
RESULTS: Our findings indicated that, the relative expression (fold) level of IL-17R gene in the patients group showed an increased level as compared to the control group. The analysis of findings
obtained in this study showed that the patient group is significantly different from the control group regarding the IL-17R mRNA level (fold) (p = 0.035).
CONCLUSION: It has been concluded that IL-17R plays an important role in the pathogenesis of CAD. It follows that superior understanding of IL-17/IL-17R signaling way will be vital for innovating novel therapeutic targets that will facilitate the designing of new drugs for the management of patients (Ref. 40).
