Association of Toll-like receptor 10 polymorphisms with autoimmune thyroid disease in Korean children.

BACKGROUND The Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are germline-encoded receptors that play an essential role in initiating the immune response against pathogens. In this study, we assess the association of TLR polymorphism with autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) in Korean children. METHODS We investigated three polymorphisms in the TLR10 gene (rs4129009… CONTINUE READING
