Due to important role of inflammation in CPB-AKI pathogenesis, we explored the association between polymorphisms in STAT3, an inflammation-asso - ciated transcription factor, and the risk of CPB-AKI. In this study, STAT3 rs1053004 and rs744166 polymorphisms were analyzed in 129 patients undergoing coro- nary artery bypass grafting in Jorjani heart center, Bandar Abbas, Iran. The geno- types were determined using sequence-specific primers (PCR–SSP). Sixty-three patients met the criteria for AKI after cardiac surgery (AKI group). The remaining 66 patients did not develop AKI (non-AKI group). Rs1053004 GG genotype was significantly associated with a decreased risk (OR 0.4, 95% CI 0.17–0.9, P = 0.03) of CPB-AKI. Subgroup analyses revealed that GG genotype has also a protective effect in older patients (Age ≥ 60) (OR 0.19, 95%
