Abstract

Background: Homocysteine (Hcy) is a detrimental intermediate amino acid of cellular metabolism in the human body. An increased level of Hcy in the blood is an indicator of a high risk of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and stroke, hyperhomocysteinemia associated with folic acid deficiency which may due to genetic background, the interaction of diet and other factors, which in turn leads to a high incidence of acute coronary syndrome and CVA by promoting atherosclerosis and endothelial cell injury.
