The aim of the current study was to assess the link between EDN K198N SNP, ET‐1 serum concentration and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in Egyptians. The study cohort consisted of 84 patients at AMI onset and 84 age‐matched healthy controls. Endothelin genotypes and concentrations were determined by sequencing and ELISA, respectively. Genotype distribution was not significantly different between AMI patients and controls (P=.8341). The mean serum ET‐1 concentration of patients (13.83±0.7 pg/mL) was significantly higher than controls (7.26±0.2 pg/mL) (P<.0001). ET‐1 serum concentrations did not vary significantly among various EDN genotypes in patients (P=.378) and controls (P=.6164). Hence, we conclude that EDN K198N genotypes were not related to either ET‐1 concentration or incidence of early‐onset AMI in Egyptians. But, AMI patients had higher ET‐1 concentrations than controls.
