GONZALEZ, F.J. et al. Prognosis value of thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor concentration and C1040T polymorphism in acute myocardial infarction treated with fibrinolysis. Med. Intensiva [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.8, pp.513-522. ISSN 0210-5691.

Objective: To analyze the prognostic value of thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) and C1040T polymorphism in acute myocardial infarction treated with fibrinolysis. To analyze C1040T polymorphism influence on its plasma level. Design: An observational, prospective study performed from November 2003 to November 2005 and with a 3 month follow-up. Setting: Intensive Medicine Service from a university-affiliated teaching hospital. Patients: A total of 53 patients with acute myocardial infarction with persistent ST segment elevation treated with the same fibrinolytic therapy. A control group of 53 biologically similar subjects was included. Interventions: None. Main measurements: Baseline characteristics; frequency of wild-type genotype (Thr325Thr) and of those corresponding to the mutation (Thr325LLe and LLe325lle), TAFI levels at 6h, 34h and 3 months post-fibrinolysis; ejection fraction; Killip-Kimball; reperfusion; ischemic recurrence; death. Results: No relationship was found between biological features and TAFI concentration. The latter was significantly higher in infarct patients (p<0.01) and in the mutation group (p<0.01). The homozygotic mutation (Ile325Ile) was significantly higher in infarct patients (p<0.01). Reperfusion was significantly associated with lower body mass index (p=0.02. OR 0.22. 95% CI), ejection fraction (p=0.004. OR 0.91. 95% CI), triglyceride level (p=0.01. OR 1.02. 95% CI) and cholesterol levels (p=0.001. OR=0.84. 95% CI). Mutation was associated to a significant fall in post-fibrinolysis concentration TAFI antigen and functional TAFI (p=0.01) and (p=0.02), and lower frequency of reperfusion. Reperfusion was associated with a significant post-fibrinolysis reduction in the level of TAFI antigen (p=0.02). Recurrence was associated to a significantly higher post-fibrinolysis level (p=0.05. OR=0.84. 95% CI). This was more frequent in mutation. Post-fibrinolysis TAFI antigen concentration was significantly lower in non-recurrence patients (p=0.028. OR=1.03. 95% CI). Conclusions: A higher concentration of TAFI is associated to a worse prognosis in reperfusion and recurrence in acute myocardial infarction treated with fibrinolysis. Homozygotic mutation was more frequent in myocardial infarction patients. Wild genotype is associated to a better prognosis. Mutation is associated to a higher expression of TAFI.
