[Association of TNF-α gene polymorphisms with Graves disease susceptibility and early course thyroid stimulating hormone receptor antibody level in Chinese Han population in Anhui region].


OBJECTIVE To assess the association of tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) gene polymorphisms at positions -863C/A, -857C/T, -238G/A and Graves disease (GD) susceptibility in Chinese Han population in Anhui region. METHODS The polymorphisms of TNF-α gene were determined by polymerase chain reaction with specific primers in 254 patients affected with GD and… (More)
