BACKGROUND The role of the tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) G-308A polymorphism in the risk of ischemic heart disease (IHD) has been controversial in recent decades. A substantial number of newly-published studies concerning the association between the TNF-α polymorphism and IHD risk have emerged after the publication of the latest meta-analysis. Therefore, we conducted an updated meta-analysis to further investigate the influence of this polymorphism on IHD. METHODS Electronic databases… CONTINUE READING
