The 4G/4G genotype of the 4G/5G polymorphism of the type-1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) gene is a determinant of penetrating behaviour in patients with Crohn's disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Crohn's disease is a heterogeneous disorder with polygenic inheritance. AIM To assess the effect of the 4G/5G polymorphism of the type-1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) gene, the major inhibitor of fibrinolysis, on Crohn's disease susceptibility and phenotype. METHODS One hundred and fifty-seven patients with Crohn's disease and 350… (More)
