Synvista Therapeutics Presents New Preclinical Data Demonstrating the Value of Haptoglobin Genotype Testing In Diabetes at ACC Scientific Sessions
Date:3/31/2008

Hb by Hp in diabetic mice that were also tested for Hp type. The study showed that in these mice, the combination of diabetes and the Hp2-2 genotype was associated with a two-to-three-fold increase in the half-life of the Hp-Hb complex compared to other Hp types. Further, a greater than 10-fold increase was found in the association of Hp-2-Hb and HDL in these mice. The study also demonstrated that vitamin E supplementation prevented the impairment of reverse cholesterol transport in diabetic mice with the Hp2-2 genotype.

About Haptoglobin 2-2

The Hp protein is polymorphic in humans, occurring with two alleles, 1 and 2, existing at the Hp genetic locus. Three phenotypes linked to the three genotypes, Hp 1-1, Hp 1-2 and Hp 2-2, can be identified using an ELISA assay. In multiple independent prospective longitudinal studies of more than 20,000 individuals, it has been established that the Haptoglobin genotype is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, with a specific relationship to patients with diabetes mellitus. After accounting for conventional cardiovascular risk factors and diabetes characteristics in these studies, research has demonstrated that there is a 2-5 fold increased risk of cardiovascular disease in people with both diabetes and the Hp 2-2 genotype (approximately 40 percent of all diabetes patients).
