In our previous studies, we presumed subtypes of Graves' disease (GD) may be caused by different major susceptibility genes or different variants of a single susceptibility gene. However, more evidence is needed to support this hypothesis. Single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2476601 in PTPN22 is the susceptibility loci of GD in the European population.(More)
Abnormalities in the transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) gene are thought to be linked to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We investigated the association between the single nuclear polymorphisms (SNPs) of TGF-β1 and the risk of COPD in a case–control study and meta-analysis. We genotyped 160 cases and 177 control subjects in a local(More)
Accumulating evidence suggests that adipose tissue is the main source of pro-inflammatory molecules that predispose individuals to insulin resistance. Stevioside (SVS) is a widely used sweetener with multiple beneficial effects for diabetic patients. In this study, we investigated the effect of SVS on insulin resistance and the pro-inflammatory state of(More)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is influenced by both environmental and genetic factors. Few gene studies of the Chinese population have focused on COPD. We investigated candidate genes associated with susceptibility to COPD in the Chinese Han population. A total of 331 COPD patients and 213 control subjects were recruited for this study.(More)
This study is to evaluate the association of 9 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with Graves' disease (GD) in different homogenous samples of the Chinese Han population. A total of 2,865 unrelated individuals were enrolled from Linyi City, Shandong Province, China, including 1,139 patients of GD and 1,726 controls. All 9 SNPs showed significant(More)
The risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is partially determined by genetic and environmental factors. Many published candidate gene studies show conflicting results due to ethnic differences and sample sizes. The number of these studies carried out in Chinese populations is small. To(More)
CONTEXT Steroid 5α-reductase type 2 deficiency (5α-RD2) is a male-limited, autosomal recessive inherited disease. Affected 46, XY individuals usually present with ambiguous genitalia at birth. An early and precise diagnosis is of great value to the long-term prognosis of the disease. OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical features and molecular determinants(More)
The aim of this study is to assess the association of the SCGB3A2 -112G>A promoter polymorphism with Graves' disease(GD) using a meta-analysis. Relevant studies were identified using PubMed and EMBASE electronic databases. A meta-analysis of relevant studies was performed. This meta-analysis included four case-control studies, containing 6,913 GD cases(More)
