Aim: To investigate the association between beta1-adrenergic receptor ( ADRB1) polymorphisms and response to bisoprolol treatment in beta-blocker naive patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Patients & methods: Seventy-seven patients received bisoprolol for four weeks. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured at baseline and during treatment. TaqMan allelic discrimination method was utilized for ADRB1 Ser49Gly and Arg389Gly genotyping. Results: Arg389Arg carriers showed greater reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressure (-8.5% ± 7.8% vs -0.76% ± 8.7%, p = 0.000218), and (-9.5% ± 9.7% vs -0.80% ± 11.5%, p = 0.000149), respectively, compared with Gly389 carriers. No statistical difference was found for study's outcomes based on codon 49. Conclusion: Arg389Gly polymorphism is a promising bisoprolol response predictor in ACS patients.
