OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of interleukin-18 (IL-18) rs1946519 and rs360718 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with cervical cancer and the risk factors for cervical cancer. METHODS The genotypes of IL-18 gene SNPs were detected in 107 cervical cancer patients and 80 healthy female blood donors (control group) by TaqMan and MGB probe assays. The allele and genotype frequencies and risk factors of cervical cancer were analyzed by Chi-square test in both groups. RESULTS No… CONTINUE READING
