The interleukin-6 gene -572G>C promoter polymorphism is related to intracranial aneurysms in Chinese Han nationality.

Abstract

There is evidence suggesting that inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of intracranial aneurysms (IAs). Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is an important pro-inflammatory cytokine, and some authors have demonstrated that IL-6 promoter polymorphism -572G>C is associated with IAs in Caucasian population. We performed a case-control study to investigate… (More)
