The genotype distribution of two gene polymorphisms, previously associated with peripheral artery disease (PAD), has been evaluated in a population of diabetic (DPAD) and non-diabetic (NDPAD) patients affected by symptomatic PAD (stages II-IV). A decreased frequency of the AA genotype of rs5498 (ICAM-1) was observed in the PAD subjects compared to controls but this result did not reach statistical significance (p=0.06 by chi-squared test). On the contrary, a significant increase in the frequency of the GG homozygous genotype of rs248793 (SRD5A1) was observed in the PAD patient group in comparison to controls (p=0.01). These data confirm that the GG genotype of rs248793 in the SRD5A1 gene is significantly associated with symptomatic PAD and show a trend towards a stronger association with the non-diabetic status.
