Özet

Background. The MTHFR C677T mutation and elevated atherogenic lipoprotein levels are known as cardiovascular risk factors in patients with renal transplantation treated with cyclosporine (CsA). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the contribution of MTHFR C677T mutation to the risk of dyslipidemia in renal transplant recipients. We also studied the effect of the MTHFR-C677 T genotype on transplant survival.
