AIM : To investigate the effect of interleukin-12 p40 gene (IL-12β) 3'-untranslated region polymorphism on the risk of cervical cancer. METHODS DNA was isolated from peripheral blood of 200 patients with cervical cancer and 200 healthy controls. Polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism was used for the detection of IL-12β (1188A… CONTINUE READING
