A Variant of IL6R Is Associated with the Recurrence of Atrial Fibrillation after Catheter Ablation in a Chinese Han Population

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent studies have identified a variant, rs4845625, in the interleukin-6 receptor (IL6R) gene associated with Atrial Fibrillation (AF). Levels of circulating interleukin-6 and other proinflammatory molecules have consistently been associated with a risk for AF and its recurrence after catheter ablation. This study tested the hypothesis that… (More)
