Cytokines play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune thyroid disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of the single base change polymorphic variants identified in the first intron of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) (+874 T/A) with susceptibility to thyroid dysfunctions. A total of 340 subjects were included in the study… CONTINUE READING
