|Title:||Plasma homocysteine levels in cardiovascular disease, malaria and protein-energy malnutrition in Sudan|
|Authors:||Abdel Gader, A.G.M.|
|Abstract:||This study investigated the role of hyperhomocysteinaemia as a risk factor in Sudanese adults suffering from cardiovascular disease or malaria and children with protein-energy malnutrition. Mean total plasma homocysteine levels [micro mol/L] were significantly higher in patients with coronary heart disease [17.64; SD 11.68] recurrent venous thrombosis [5.06; SD 10.55] and recurrent malaria [13.61; SD 4.82] than in healthy adult controls [7.85; SD 3.39]. The mean homocysteine level was also significantly higher in children with protein-energy malnutrition [8.41; SD 1.61] than in healthy control children [5.72; SD 1.99]|
