Although the exact pathogenesis of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) remains to be determined, our previous data suggested a genetic contribution to the host susceptibility to SSPE. During chronic viral infection, virus-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes display poor effector functions. Since co-inhibitory molecules are involved in the suppression of T lymphocytes, we investigated whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of genes encoding co-inhibitory molecules contributed to a… 
Granzyme B gene polymorphism associated with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
Findings implicate possible effect of this genetic polymorphism in susceptibility to SSPE which needs to be confirmed in bigger populations.
PDCD1 and CTLA4 polymorphisms affect the susceptibility to, and clinical features of, chronic immune thrombocytopenia
The results suggest that the immune checkpoint polymorphisms may affect the susceptibility to the clinical features of cITP, and treatment response of the affected patients.

Association of genetic polymorphisms in CD8+ T cell inhibitory genes and susceptibility to and progression of chronic HBV infection.
Programmed cell death 1 (PDCD1) gene haplotypes and susceptibility of patients to basal cell carcinoma
Programmed death-1 (PD-1), as an immunoinhibitory receptor encoded by programmed cell death-1 ( PDCD1 ) gene, has a pivotal role in tolerance to self-antigens. Mutations of PDCD1 may participate in
PDCD1 and PDCD1LG1 polymorphisms affect the susceptibility to multiple myeloma
This study indicates that the PDCD1 haplotype is associated with a susceptibility to multiple myeloma, and thePDCD1 rs2227982 and PDCD 1LG1rs2297136 affect the clinical features of multipleMyeloma patients.
PD-1 gene polymorphisms and thyroid expression of PD-1 ligands differ between Graves’ and Hashimoto’s diseases
The functional PD1 rs36084323 polymorphism and the thyroid PD-1/ PD-L1s expression which may enhance the suppressive activity of Treg cells differ between GD and HD, and the PD1rs3608 4323 and rs2227982 polymorphisms and PD1+ Treg Cells are related to the severity of HD.
PDCD1 gene polymorphisms as regulators of T‐lymphocyte activity in cutaneous melanoma risk and prognosis
Preliminary evidence that abnormalities in regulation of T lymphocyte alter CM risk, clinical aspects, and prognosis is provided, as well as potential implications for clinical and clinicopathological aspects, of cutaneous melanoma.


Contribution of the interleukin 4 gene to susceptibility to subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
This study is the first to demonstrate the possibility that the IL-4 promoter gene -589 T gene polymorphism with increasedIL-4 synthesis in combination with IRF-1 allele 1 confers host genetic susceptibility to SSPE in Japanese subjects.
Analysis of MxA, IL-4, and IRF-1 genes in Filipino patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
This study failed to demonstrate a significant association between IL-4, MXA, or IRF-1, and SSPE in the Filipino population, which might be explained by a greater contribution of environmental factors such as the socio-economic and nutritional factors in the susceptibility of Filipinos to S SPE.
A role for dual viral hits in causation of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis
The creation of a transgenic mouse model that mimics the cardinal features of SSPE is reported, achieved by initially infecting mice expressing the MV receptor with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus Cl 13, a virus that transiently suppressed their immune system.
Association of PDCD1 with susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus: evidence of population-specific effects.
The results confirm the association of PDCD1 with susceptibility to SLE, but the findings show a lack of involvement of the PD1.3 A allele, which probably reflects population differences in the haplotype structure of thePDCD1 locus.
A regulatory polymorphism in PDCD1 is associated with susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus in humans
It is shown that one intronic SNP in PDCD1 is associated with development of SLE in Europeans, and this SNP alters a binding site for the runt-related transcription factor 1 (RUNX1) located in an intronic enhancer, suggesting a mechanism through which it can contribute to the development ofSLE in humans.
A new haplotype of PDCD1 is associated with rheumatoid arthritis in Hong Kong Chinese.
The results support the involvement of PDCD1 as a susceptibility gene for RA in the Chinese population.
A PD‐1 polymorphism is associated with disease progression in multiple sclerosis
The data suggest thatPD‐1 polymorphism is a genetic modifier of the progression of MS, possibly through inducing a partial defect in PD‐1–mediated inhibition of T‐cell activation.
Association of the T-cell regulatory gene CTLA4 with susceptibility to autoimmune disease
Genes and mechanisms involved in common complex diseases, such as the autoimmune disorders that affect approximately 5% of the population, remain obscure. Here we identify polymorphisms of the
PD-1 gene haplotype is associated with the development of type 1 diabetes mellitus in Japanese children
The genetic evaluation by association study demonstrated that the PD-1 gene was a predisposing gene to the development of T1D mellitus in the Japanese population.
