BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown the genetic association of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α polymorphisms and susceptibility to primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), but the results of individual studies have remained contradictory. Therefore, a meta-analysis was carried out to evaluate comprehensively the association of TNF-α polymorphisms and susceptibility to PBC. METHODS The relevant published articles were searched in PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane library. Data were extracted using… CONTINUE READING
