The interleukin 1B-511 polymorphism is associated with the risk of developing restenosis after coronary stenting in Mexican patients.

Inflammation is the primary response to vessel wall injury caused by stent placement in coronary arteries. Cytokines of the interleukin-1 family are central regulators in immunoinflammatory mechanisms. The objective of this study was to test for association between IL-1 family gene polymorphisms and risk for restenosis after coronary stent placement. The IL… (More)
