Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most common cause of death among patients with end-stage renal disease especially whom under hemodialysis (HD). Stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1) and its receptor CXC chemokine receptor type-4 (CXCR4) could contribute to CVD. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the association between SDF-1 and CXCR4 with CVD and its related risk factors in patients under HD. Methods: Sixty patients under HD and 29 healthy subjects were recruited in the study. The serum levels and relative messenger RNA (mRNA) expressions of SDF-1 and CXCR4 were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and real-time polymerase chain reaction in patients and controls, respectively. CVD history of the patients was obtained. Results: Twenty patients (33.3%) had a history of CVD. The mean levels of serum and relative mRNA expressions of SDF-1 and CXCR4 were higher in patients than controls and also in patients with a history of CVD than patients without it. The serum levels and relative expressions of SDF-1 and CXCR4 were positively correlated with blood urea nitrogen, parathyroid hormone, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and inversely correlated with hemoglobin. The history of CVD was the independent predictor of serum levels of SDF-1 and CXCR4 and also relative mRNA expression of CXCR4. Conclusions: The higher levels of serum and relative mRNA expressions of SDF-1 and CXCR4 were associated with CVD in patients under HD. Furthermore, SDF-1 and CXCR4 were associated with several traditional and uremia-related CVD risk factors in such patients.
