Possible Role of Polymorphisms in TNFA, NFKB1, and CASP8 Gene Promoter Areas in the Development of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

We studied the relationship between polymorphisms rs1800629 (-308G>A), rs28362491 (-94ins>del), and rs3834129 (-652ins>del) in the promoter regions of TNFA, NFKB1, and CASP8 genes, respectively, encoding TNF-α, nuclear transcription factor κB1 (NF-κB1), and caspase 8 (CASP8), and the risk and stages of chronic lymphocytic leukemia in ethnic Russians… (More)
