Abstract

BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggested an association between Chlamydia pneumoniae and Mycoplasma pneumonia with atherosclerosis, separately. Until now, according to inconsistent information, the relationship between C.pneumoniae and M.pneumoniae with atherosclerosis is controversial. OBJECTIVE: the aim of this study, investigate of the association between C.pneumoniae and M.pneumoniae as two separate risk factors with atherosclerosis by systematic review and meta-analysis study. METHODS: We searched databases such as Pubmed, SID, Magiran, Google scholar and Iranmedex using the following keywords in English and Persian language as C. pneumoniae , M. pneumoniae and atherosclerosis. Data were analyzed with meta-analysis and a random effect model. Also, in this study Heterogeneity of articles were estimated by using I2 index. Finally, data was analyzed with STAT (version 11.2) Results: Among thirty-eight articles for C. pneumoniae and five articles for M. pneumoniae individually reviewed that included 2980 samples for M. pneumoniae and 23298 samples for C. pneumoniae, result demonstrated that association between M. pneumoniae and C. pneumoniae with atherosclerosis is significant with OR (odd ratio) = 1.58 (95 Confidence Interval (CI): 1.00 to 2.50), OR (odd ratio) = 2.25(95 Confidence Interval (CI): 1.91 to 2.64), respectively. CONCLUSION: This systematic review study provides strong evidence for the role of persistent bacterial infection such as M. pneumoniae and C. pneumoniae in potential atherosclerosis. Thus, a novel way should be employed for the complete management of bacterial infection.
