The clinical features suggest that genetic factors may have a strong influence on susceptibility to coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim of this study was to investigate the association between FokI (rs2228570) and BsmI (rs1544410) of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms and patients with CAD in a Chinese population. One hundred and fifty-two CAD patients and 212 healthy controls were genotyped for the FokI and BsmI polymorphisms in VDR gene using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism. No significant differences were observed in the genotype and allele frequencies of the FokI and BsmI polymorphisms between the cases and controls (For FokI: odds ratio = 1.11, 95% confidence interval 0.83-1.50; for BsmI: odds ratio = 0.74, 95% confidence interval 0.44-1.23). There was no significant difference in the genotype distribution or the allele frequencies of VDR FokI and BsmI between two groups in a Chinese population.
