Selected RANKL/RANK/OPG system genetic variants in diabetic foot patients.

ABSTRACT: Purpose:Diabetic foot is a complication of long-lasting diabetes mellitus affecting up to 15% of patients, both in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Osteoprotegerin is involved in osteogenesis and calcification. The aim of the study was to assess the role of selected osteoprotegerin gene variants in diabetes patients with diabetic foot. Methods:The study involved 300 patients with diabetes and diabetic foot and 968 healthy controls. The study group was formed by 243 patients with diabetic foot of neuropathic origin, 102 with diabetic foot of neuroischemic origin and 77 with Charcot neuroarthropathy. Results:Compared to controls, rs1872426 and rs1485286 showed correlation with diabetic foot in diabetes subjects. Significant associations between rs2073618, rs1872426, rs7464496 and rs1485286 in men were reported. The aforementioned correlations were also present in type 2 diabetes patient subgroup. Variant rs1485286 was associated to diabetic foot of neuropathic origin. Sex-specificity for females was present for rs6993813 in patients with diabetic foot of neuropathic origin and type 1 diabetes. Variants rs1872426, rs2073617 and rs1485286 were correlated with CN. We found that age, body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference and waist-hip ratio were among the basic risk factors of diabetic foot. Conclusions:The following variants TNFRSF11B (rs2073618, rs2073617, rs1872426, rs1032128, rs7464496, rs11573829 and rs1485286), COLEC10 (rs6993813, rs3134069) and TNFSF11 (rs9533156) present differences in allele frequencies in diabetic foot patients and show correlation with gender, diabetes type and diabetic foot etiology.
