BACKGROUND This study was performed to investigate whether specific haplotypes and several single nucleotide polymorphisms in the promoter region of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha gene are associated with the risk of advanced stage endometriosis in a Korean population. METHODS This study comprised women with (n = 246) or without (n = 248) endometriosis. The TNF:g.[-1031T > C], TNF:g.[-863C > A] and TNF:g.[-857C > T] polymorphism in the TNF-alpha gene were assessed by PCR-restriction… CONTINUE READING
