The role of the CCR5 Delta32 polymorphism in abdominal aortic aneurysms.


BACKGROUND C-C chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) is involved in the regulation of the inflammatory response. Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) may arise as the result of a chronic inflammatory process which is influenced by genetic predisposition.
