Polymorphisms of chemokine and chemokine receptor genes in idiopathic immune-mediated posterior segment uveitis

Abstract

PURPOSE Chemokines are important inflammatory mediators that play a crucial role in uveitis. Polymorphisms in chemokine genes can alter the expression of these genes in the inflammatory cells, which, in turn, can affect the clinical phenotype of the disease. The purpose of this study was to identify polymorphisms in chemokine genes that can predict visual… (More)
