OBJECTIVE Previous studies implicated that IL17/IL23 pathway and TH17 cells play an important role in autoimmune inflammation. Genome wide association studies have identified multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the IL23R and IL17 genes region associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS In this study, we investigated the association(More)
OBJECTIVES One of the most important pro-inflammatory cytokines in the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is interleukin 1 (IL-1). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the association between IL-1B (-511), IL-1 (+3953), IL-1 RN variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphisms and the occurrence in Algerian patients with rheumatoid(More)
Increasing evidence suggests that the rs6822844, within KIAA1109/TENR/IL2/IL21 gene cluster on 4q27, is strongly associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in the Caucasian population. The aim of this study is to investigate the possible association between the SNP rs6822844 and susceptibility to RA in the Algerian Maghreb population, and to explore the(More)
