  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Cytokine gene polymorphisms may alter Th1/Th2 balance with major implications in tuberculosis. The aim of our study was to find out whether Interferon gamma +874A and IL-4 -590T polymorphisms were associated with susceptibility to pulmonary tuberculosis as well as the level of IFNgamma and IL-4 in south Indian population. METHODS Interferon gamma +874A and IL-4 -590T promoter polymorphisms were studied in 129 pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients and 127 normal healthy… CONTINUE READING
