Associations between functional TNFR2 196 M/R polymorphisms and susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis: a meta-analysis

Several studies have examined the effects of tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) 1 +38 A/G and TNFR2 196 M/R polymorphisms on susceptibility to RA and have reported conflicting results. The purpose of this study was to examine whether the TNFR1 +38 A/G and TNFR2 196 M/R polymorphisms are associated with RA susceptibility. We performed a literature search… CONTINUE READING
