SETTING Stellenbosch University Faculty of Health Sciences, and metropolitan Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the reported association between SLC11A1 (also NRAMP1) polymorphisms and susceptibility to tuberculosis (TB) can be confirmed in a different population, and whether polymorphisms in SLC11A2 (also NRAMP2, DCT1, DMT1) are associated with TB. DESIGN A case-control study design was used to compare the frequencies of five polymorphisms in SLC11A1… CONTINUE READING
