Association between toll-like receptors 9 (TLR9) gene polymorphism and risk of pulmonary tuberculosis: meta-analysis

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous studies indicated that the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in TLR9 gene might be associated with Tuberculosis (TB) risk. However, the results are inconsistent and inconclusive. METHODS 1745 articles from four databases were involved in our study. A meta-analysis on the associations between the seven polymorphisms and TB risk was… (More)
