Abstract: 

Background & Objective: Cigarette smoking has clearly been identified as an independent, major risk factor of cardiovascular disease.
Methods: To compare the levels of two risk factors including plasma malondialdehyde and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in smokers and non-smokers, we investigated their plasma levels in 150 smokers’ men and 50 non-smokers men.
Results: In smokers, plasma levels malondialdehyde (P<0.001) and cTnI (P<0.001) were all significantly higher than non-smokers. Also, among two risk factors, cTnI increased significantly to 10-fold (P<0.001) in smokers.
Conclusion: These results showed that the plasma malondialdehyde and cTnI levels were increased in smokers and thus it can be suggested that may be relationship between elevated two risk factors levels and increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
