Abstract

Objective-: NADPH oxidase, one of the most important enzymes producing reactive oxidant species, is suggested to play a role in experimental atherosclerosis, but its role in human atherosclerosis is still unclear. We hypothesized that a reduced activity of NADPH oxidase might be linked to a reduced atherosclerotic burden. METHODS AND RESULTS-: Thirty-one women carriers of hereditary deficiency of NOX2, the catalytic subunit of NADPH oxidase, were matched for sex and age with 31 controls and 31 obese women. Flow-mediated dilation and intima-media thickness, 2 surrogate markers of atherosclerosis, serum activity of NOX2, urinary isoprostanes, serum levels of nitrite/nitrate, and platelet production of isoprostanes and nitrite/nitrate were determined. Compared with controls (5.7±3.0% and 0.60±0.11 mm), carriers of NOX2 deficiency had higher flow-mediated dilation (9.2±5.0%; P
