INTRODUCTION It has been suggested that allergies are inversely associated with glioma risk. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in two allergy-related genes [interleukin (IL)-4Rα, IL-13] have been implicated in susceptibility to glioma; however, results from the published studies remained inconclusive. METHODS To derive a more precise relationship, we conducted a meta-analysis including seven case-control studies that investigated the influence of IL-4Rα rs1801275 and IL13 rs20541 polymorphisms… CONTINUE READING
