Interleukin-21 receptor (IL-21R) gene polymorphism is related with the development of systemic vasculitis. In this study, we investigated the polymorphisms of IL-21R gene in patients with Kawasaki disease (KD).
SUBJECTS AND METHODS
We genotyped the promoter region of IL-21R gene (-2500 bp to +1 bp) in 100 patients with KD and 100… (More)
