The association of rs17321515 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) near TRIB1 gene and serum lipid profiles has never been studied in the Chinese population. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to detect the association of rs17321515 SNP and several environmental factors on serum lipid levels in the Mulao and Han populations. A total of 639(More)

The balance between interleukin-18 (IL-18) and its endogenous antagonist, IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP), was evaluated in children with Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). Plasma IL-18 and IL-18BP levels and peripheral blood mononuclear cell IL-18 mRNA expression were significantly higher in patients with active HSP (n = 30) than in healthy controls (n =(More)
