Interleukin-12B+1188A/C polymorphism contributes to increased hepatocellular carcinoma susceptibility: evidence from a meta-analysis.


BACKGROUND Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is a multifunctional cytokine that induces interferon (IFN)-γ secretion and plays an important role in antitumor immunity. The IL-12B +1188A/C polymorphism was found to correlate with a decreased cytokine production and/or activity, which may lead to increased susceptibility to cancers including hepatocellular carcinoma… (More)
