The aim of present study was to clarify the role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) Pro12Ala and C161T variants in the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris (AV) and their influence on lipid and lipoprotein profile.The present case-control study consisted of 393 individuals including 198 patients with AV (mild-, moderate-, and severe-AV) and 195 unrelated age-matched healthy individuals from Western Iran. The PPARγ Pro12Ala and C161T polymorphisms were identified using polymerase chain reaction-restriction length polymorphism method. Also, serum lipid and lipoprotein profile and fasting blood sugar (FBS) were detected in studied individuals.In women patients with AV significantly higher serum levels of FBS, total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and high density lipoprotein-cholesterol compared to healthy women were detected. Neither PPARγ Pro12Ala nor C161T polymorphism was associated with the risk of AV but the Pro allele was a risk factor for AV among all men and women patients ≥20years. The variant genotype of PPARγ CG (Pro/Ala) was associated with significantly higher levels of total cholesterol and triglycerides compared to CC (Pro/Pro) genotype. We detected a significantly lower level of FBS in the presence of CT+TT genotype of PPARγ C161T compared to CC genotype. Also, carriers of PPARγ TT genotype had significantly lower serum level of total cholesterol and LDL-C compared to CC genotype.Our results demonstrated the association of PPARγ Pro allele with susceptibility to AV in patients ≥20years and the influence of PPARγ Pro12Ala and C161T polymorphisms on the lipid and lipoprotein profile.
