CTLA-4 gene polymorphism at position +49 A>G in exon 1: a risk factor for cervical cancer in Indian women.


Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the CTLA-4 gene exert differential effects on T-cell response to viral infection. We aimed to evaluate the association of two SNPs of the CTLA-4 gene with cervical cancer in Indian women. The two polymorphic loci, one in the promoter region -318 C>T, rs5742909 (100 cervical cancer cases and 101 controls) and the… (More)
