In the UK, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is a major cause of postperinatal mortality up to the end of the first year of life. Several studies have found an association between cytokine IL-10 genotypes and SIDS. The aim of the present work was to test the hypothesis that SIDS is associated with high producer gene polymorphisms for certain proinflammatory cytokines and with low producer gene polymorphisms of certain antiinflammatory cytokines. DNA polymorphisms were investigated using… CONTINUE READING
