Objectives: Formation of collateral circulation is an endogenous

mechanism by re-routing blood. Inflammatory responserelated

We explored the genetic basis of collateral formation in man

Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in these inflammatory

well as the interactions among them was examined in a cohort

54 candidate SNPs. Patients were classified to the extent of

and a haplotype entropy procedure were applied to search

Multiple testing was addressed by using the false discovery

patients with and 142 without visible collaterals. Among the

of collaterals with the FDR of 0.19. Nine SNPs were

Two sets of coupling haplotypes that predispose to collateral

suggest that collateral formation may arise from the

related genes, which may represent targets in future studies

for risk stratification and therapeutic stimulation of arteriogenesis.
