Aim: Arterial stiffening reflects fragmentation and loss of elastin fibers and accumulation of stiffer collagen fibers in the media of large arteries. We evaluated associations between carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) and a marker of collagen type VI formation (Pro-C6) and a marker of collagen type III degradation (C3M) in type 1 diabetes. Methods: Serum and urinary level of Pro-C6 and C3M was measured with ELISA in 634 patients with type 1 diabetes. cfPWV was assessed by the

Adjustment included sex, age, mean arterial pressure, LDL cholesterol, smoking, HbA 1c , eGFR and urinary albumin excretion rate. To adjust for urine output levels, the urinary markers were normalized for urinary creatinine. Results: Of the 634 patients, 349 (55%) were male, mean AE SD age was 54.6 AE 12.6 years and cfPWV 10.4 AE 3.3 m/s. Higher serum and urinary level of Pro-C6 was associated with higher cfPWV in unadjusted models (p 0.039), after adjustment only higher serum level remained significantly associated with higher cfPWV (b estimate per doubling: 0.47 AE 0.21; p Z 0.028). Lower urinary level of C3M was associated with higher cfPWV in the unadjusted model (p < 0.001), but significance was lost after adjustment (p Z 0.44). Higher serum level of C3M was associated with higher cfPWV in the unadjusted model (p Z 0.002), but significance was lost after adjustment (p Z 0.34). Conclusion: In type 1 diabetes, higher serum levels of Pro-C6, a marker of collagen type VI formation, was associated with increased arterial stiffness. This observation could introduce a new target for therapeutic intervention.
