Populations from eastern India have been examined for the allele distribution at polymorphic sites in the IL8 and IL1B genes. Significant differences in allele frequencies between caste and tribal population groups were observed. However, there are no differences in allele frequencies among various subpopulations within caste or tribal groups. We argue that different caste populations from the same geographic location can be pooled for the purpose of population association studies. 
Association of specific haplotype of TNF withα Helicobacter pylori-mediated duodenal ulcer in eastern Indian population
The analysis of promoter polymorphisms of TNF-α, IL6 and IL8 revealed no association with H. pylori-mediated duodenal ulcer at the genotype level, and no correlation was observed between the expression of these cytokine genes and the polymorphic status of the individuals.
Association of Interleukin-1β and Gene Polymorphisms with Liver Pathogenesis in Hepatitis B Virus Infection among Eastern Indian Population.
IL-1β polymorphisms are found to be associated with disease severity and different polymorphic combinations are associated with degree of disease severity in HBV-infected individuals.
Interaction between IL1B gene promoter polymorphisms in determining susceptibility to Helicobacter pylori associated duodenal ulcer
The results show that H. pylori‐infected individuals with the −31CC genotype secrete less IL1B and are susceptible to duodenal ulcers, and suggest that the allelic interaction between the −511 and −31 polymorphic sites determines the overall strength of the IL1 B promoter.
Association of specific genotype and haplotype of p53 gene with cervical cancer in India
Background: The predictive value of codon 72 arginine homozygosity at the p53 gene for human papilloma virus associated cervical cancer risk remains inconclusive. It has also been proposed that the
Risk assessment of p53 genotypes and haplotypes in tobacco‐associated leukoplakia and oral cancer patients from eastern india
It is shown that both specific p53 genotype and haplotype can indicate risk of Tobacco‐associated leukoplakia, but risk of development of tobacco‐associated oral SCC can be predicted by specific p 53 haplotype only.

Expression of interleukin 1β in gastric cancer tissue and its effects on gastric cancer
It can be concluded that IL-1β plays an important role in the occurrence and development of Gastric cancer and promotes the treatment of gastric cancer to some extent.

Inhibitory effect of interleukin-1 β antibody for NLRP 3 inflammasome on epilepsy rat model
Background: Although the important role of interleukin-1β (IL-1β) in the pathogenesis of epilepsy had been evidenced by clinical survey, its molecular mechanisms details were still unclear;
Early Pattern of Epstein-Barr Virus Infection in Gastric Epithelial Cells by “Cell-in-cell”
The results demonstrated that EBV could get into gastric epithelial cells by “cell-in-cell” infection but not fully successful due to the host fighting, and imply that the gastric intestinal cells could powerfully resist the virus invader via cell- in-cell at the early stage through inflammatory and innate immune responses.


Frequency of cytokine polymorphisms in populations from western Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America.
Application ofPCR-SSOP identification procedures to a range of diverse geographically distributed populations has identified ethnic differences within the groups studied.
Nucleotide diversity of the TNF gene region in an African village
The nucleotide diversity found within a single African village is similar to the global value for human autosomal genes sampled across different continents.
Unusual haplotypic structure of IL8, a susceptibility locus for a common respiratory virus.
The IL8-251A allele resides on two haplotypes, only one of which is associated with disease, suggesting that this may not be the functional allele and that selective pressure may have acted on this locus.
Linkage disequilibrium and allele-frequency distributions for 114 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in five populations.
The results suggest that population differences and marker location within the gene may be important factors in the selection of SNPs for use in the study of complex disease with linkage or association mapping methods.
Single nucleotide polymorphisms in intron 2 of the human interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) gene: further definition of the IL-1 beta and IL-1Ra polymorphisms in North American Caucasians and Taiwanese Chinese.
A novel polymorphism with 3 nucleotide substitutions in the IL-1Ra VNTR 2-repeat allele is identified that is associated with increased risks of chronic inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and gastric cancer and can cause misleading amplification results when stringent conditions are used for annealing.
Interleukin 1B and interleukin 1RN polymorphisms are associated with increased risk of gastric carcinoma.
A significant association between the IL-1 polymorphisms and increased risk for tumor development in patients with intestinal-type gastric carcinoma is found and evidence pointing to the existence of a synergistic interaction between theIL-1B and IL- 1RN polymorphisms is found.

Recent work suggests that large-scale family linkage and population association studies will be a more successful route to human disease genes than extrapolation from mouse models of infection.
Interleukin-1 polymorphisms associated with increased risk of gastric cancer
It is reported that interleukin-1 gene cluster polymorphisms suspected of enhancing production of interleucine-1-beta are associated with an increased risk of both hypochlorhydria induced by H. pylori and gastric cancer.
Genetics, cytokines and human infectious disease: lessons from weakly pathogenic mycobacteria and salmonellae
Host genetic factors are important in determining the outcome of infections caused by intracellular pathogens, including mycobacteria and salmonellae, but until now have been poorly characterized.
Molecular Evolutionary Genetics
Recent developments of statistical methods in molecular phylogenetics are reviewed and it is shown that the mathematical foundations of these methods are not well established, but computer simulations and empirical data indicate that currently used methods produce reasonably good phylogenetic trees when a sufficiently large number of nucleotides or amino acids are used.
