Abstract: 

Fibrinogen is one of the plasma proteins synthesized by the liver. Elevated plasma fibrinogen is an independent coronary artery disease (CAD) risk factor and increases the risk of thrombus formation. This study was performed to compare the plasma fibrinogen level in opium addict men with non opium users. Each group consisted of 60 males, who didn't smoke cigarettes and were not suffered from diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia and hypertension. Mean age was 46.6±3 and 45.7±3. 6 years in opium addict and control group retrospectively. The mean level of plasma fibrinogen for the opium addict group was significantly higher than that of control group (319.1 ± 58.3 mg/dl vs 295.7±48.3 mg/dl, P=0.018). There was no significant difference between two groups regarding other parameters (CBC, Hb, Hct, TC, TG, Cr), but plasma urea in control group was significantly higher than addict group (P=0.008). Our study revealed that plasma fibrinogen level in opium addicted men was significantly higher than non-opium users.
