Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is an important anti-inflammatory cytokine that modulates severe periportal fibrosis (PPF). We hypothesized that genetic polymorphisms (-G1082A/-C819T/-C592A) of the IL-10 gene(More)
INTRODUCTION We hypothesized higher mannose-binding lectin level and classic factors (i.e., age, sex, alcohol consumption, exposure, and specific treatment) are associated with the severity of(More)
INTRODUCTION: We evaluated the associations between interleukin-10 (IL-10) gene polymorphisms -G1082A/-C819T/-C592A and periportal fibrosis regression after specific treatment for schistosomiasis. (More)
AIMS Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is a proinflammatory cytokine and important mediator of severity for periportal fibrosis (PPF). We hypothesized that the (-G380A) polymorphism in the TNF-α(More)
