BACKGROUND Polymorphisms in genes linked to the innate and adaptive immune response may be involved in inflammatory bowel disease pathogenesis. Our aim was to investigate associations among IL1B-511, IL1B-31, IL1RN, TNFA-307, TLR-2, TLR-4, IL2-330, NOD2 G908R, NOD2 L1007fsinsC polymorphisms and both Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) in a Brazilian population. METHODS We studied 43 patients with CD, 42 with UC, and 541 blood donors. Polymorphisms were evaluated by PCR, PCR-CTPP… CONTINUE READING
