Association between I/D polymorphism in the ACE gene and sarcoidosis in Turkish patients.

Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a chronic inflammatory disease with a complex pathogenesis and unknown etiology characterized by noncaseating granulomas that invade the lungs, eyes, liver and other organs. Insertion (I)/deletion (D) polymorphism in the gene encoding the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) has been studied to examine the genetic predisposition to sarcoidosis… (More)
