Fatty Acids, IL6, and TNFα Polymorphisms: An Example of Nutrigenetics in Crohn's Disease


OBJECTIVES:The aim of this work was to study the interaction between genetic polymorphisms (single-nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs) of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines and fat intake on the risk of developing Crohn's disease (CD) or modifying disease activity.METHODS:Seven SNPs in interleukin 1 (IL1), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα), lymphotoxin alpha… (More)
