Background Nitric oxide is a common mediator for the action of adiponectin and myeloperoxidase (MPO). Its importance is as a predictor of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) severity. Aim The aim of the present study was to find a relationship between plasma adiponectin level, MPO activity, lipid profile, serum nitrite/nitrate, and severity of AMI disease. Patients and methods To achieve this aim, 30 patients with AMI with age ranged from 35 to older than 70 years and 10 clinically healthy participants as control were subjected to this study. Results The result of this study showed a significant association between the occurrence of AMI and low adiponectin level, high MPO activity, low nitrite level, high total cholesterol level, high triacylglycerol level, high low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol level, low high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol level, and high low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol ratio. These parameters may all be regarded as predictors or risk factors for AMI. Conclusion The findings of the present study suggest that hyperlipidemia, vascular inflammation, and oxidative stress are primary interacting mediators in the pathogenesis of AMI.
