OBJECTIVES The main objective of this study was to study tumor necrosis factor beta (TNFB) + 252G/A gene polymorphism, known to be related to autoimmunity, in immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) patients. We also aimed to investigate the association between TNFB + 252G/A polymorphism and susceptibility to develop persistent/chronic ITP. METHODS One hundred… CONTINUE READING
