OBJECTIVE Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognize a wide range of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP) and mount the initiation of immune response. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in exons of genes encoding TLRs might be responsible for the generation of an abnormal immune response which could lead to autoimmune diseases. In this study, we(More)
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that has strong contribution of genetic factors to its etiology. We aimed to assess the genetic association between non-HLA genes and T1D in a Chinese case-control cohort recruited from multiple centers consisting of 364 patients with T1D and 719 unrelated healthy children. We genotyped 55 single nucleotide(More)
