Abstract

Objectives: To investigate the association between carotid atherosclerosis and genetic polymorphisms of inflammatory genes among residents in the Lanyan Basin which was a newly confirmed arsenic-endemic area. Methods: Residents aged ≥40 years were recruited and examined for carotid atherosclerosis by Duplex ultrasonography. A total of 332 subjects were randomly selected from the study population as carotid atherosclerosis patients based on their health examination reports with IMT ≥1.0 mm and a plaque score ≥1. Controls were 302 subjects with IMT
