INTRODUCTION IL-4 and IL-13 polymorphisms have been shown to influence the susceptibility to systemic diseases. In this study, possible associations between the IL-4 -590 C-->T, IL-4 -34 C-->T, IL-13 -1112 C-->T and IL-13 -1512 A-->C promoter polymorphisms were investigated in subjects with generalized aggressive periodontitis (AgP) compared with healthy(More)
BACKGROUND High-level MYCN amplification (MNA) is associated with poor outcome and unfavorable clinical and biological features in patients with neuroblastoma. To the authors' knowledge, less is known regarding these associations in patients with low-level MYCN copy number increases. METHODS In this retrospective study, the authors classified patients has(More)
OBJECTIVES Recently, interleukin (IL) 4 gene polymorphisms have been analyzed in association with periodontitis. Genetic differences between Caucasian and Japanese patients with periodontitis have previously been detected. The aim of the present study was to analyze IL-4 genotypes in Caucasian and Japanese patients with aggressive periodontitis (AgP). (More)
