Abstract

Background: The relationship between serum adiponectin levels and coronary stenosis and the interaction of low serum adiponectin levels and smoking on coronary stenosis have not been clarified. Methods: We conducted a hospital-based case-control study to examine serum adiponectin levels and smoking in 86 male patients with coronary stenosis and 145 male controls, using multiple logistic regression analyses. Serum adiponectin levels were grouped into quartiles for the analysis of the relationship between serum adiponectin levels and coronary stenosis, and into dichotomy for the analysis of the interaction of low serum adiponectin levels and smoking status. Results: Decreasing serum adiponectin levels were significantly associated with increased risk of coronary stenosis in a dose-dependent manner. As for the interaction of low serum adiponectin levels and smoking on coronary stenosis, adjusted odds ratios were 14.00 (95% Confidence Interval 5.45-37.48) among ever-smokers with low serum adiponectin levels, 3.84 (95% CI: 1.44-10.21) among ever-smokers with high serum adiponectin levels and 3.79 (95% CI: 1.38-10.45) among never-smokers with low serum adiponectin levels, compared with the reference group of never-smokers with high serum adiponectin levels. Conclusions: The interaction of low serum adiponectin levels and smoking on coronary stenosis was likely to be a synergic effect. This study suggests that the combination of low serum adiponectin levels and smoking is the most useful predictor for coronary stenosis among Japanese men.
