BACKGROUND: A previous study found that target organ damage in patients with hypertension was related to genetic factors. The aim of our study aim was to explore the association between the ABCB1 gene and renal function injury induced by hypertension.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: We used a case-control study design. Patients with hypertension were enrolled from our hospital between July 2015 and December 2015. Questionnaire data included personal information, life habits and behavior. Clinical data included blood routine examination and liver and renal function. We used restriction fragment length polymorphism methods for ABCB1 gene polymorphism detection.

RESULTS: There were 306 patients with hypertension included in the final analyses: 170 cases of hypertension and 136 controls. Compared to controls, the cases group had higher: drinking ratio (65.3% versus 52.9%, p=0.029), body mass index (p=0.032), systolic blood pressure (p<0.001), total cholesterol (p=0.004), blood urea nitrogen (p=0.029), creatinine (p=0.024), uric acid (p=0.011), estimated glomerular filtration rate level (p<0.001), and platelet level (p=0.003). There were no significant differences for others parameters. Genotype frequency distributions of rs1045642 were statistically significant between the two groups (χ²=24.966, p<0.001). No differences were observed for the frequency distribution of rs10808072 and rs1922242 (χ²=1.293, p=0.524; χ²=0.065, p=0.968). The multivariable logistics results found that patients with TT genotype had a higher risk for renal function injury for hypertensive patients compared to those with CC genotype (OR=3.47, 95% CI: 1.19–10.07).

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggested that the rs1045642-T allele of the ABCB1 gene may be associated with increased risk for renal function injury in hypertensive patients.
