OBJECTIVE Many genetic variations have been suggested as genetic risk factors for the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including single nucleotide polymorphisms in the transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGFB1) gene. We attempted to elucidate the association between TGFB1 genetic polymorphisms and COPD among Koreans. DESIGN The genotypes of 102 male patients with COPD and 159 volunteers with similar distributions of age, sex and smoking intensity, as well as normal… CONTINUE READING
