Increased arterial stiffness has emerged as a strong predictor of future cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. The aim of this study was to elucidate influences of endothelin (ET)-related genetic polymorphisms and regular physical activity on age-related arterial stiffening through a 10-year longitudinal study. A decadal change in brachial...

T allele of rs1205 in CRP gene was less frequent in TA. CC genotype was associated with involvement of coronary arteries and ascending aorta. CC genotype was less commonly associated with blunted CRP response (CT + TT > CC).
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is considered to be a kind of cytokine reactive tumor. The research has been suggested that the host immune system can regulate the clinical course of RCC. Therefore, cytokine gene polymorphisms in RCC patients were analyzed was necessary. Our study is purpose to analyzing the interleukin-4(IL-4) polymorphisms associated ...
This study investigated the relation of the fungiform taste papillae density and saliva composition with the taste perception of patients suffering from diagnosed taste disorders. For this purpose, 81 patients and 40 healthy subjects were included. Taste was measured by means of regional and whole mouth chemosensory tests, and electrogustometry. Ol...

Objective: The aim of our study was to determine the relation of particular genetic variants in selected genes (GSTM1, GSTT1 null genotypes; rs1695 GSTP1; rs10735781 EVI5) to the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) development and find out the possible association with disease disability progression rate. Material and methods: Our study included 202 MS...

Cardiovascular morbidity is the leading cause of death in dialysis patients and many risk factors have been involved in its pathogenesis. Genetic susceptibility may be of importance including polymorphism for matrix metalloproteinase 3 (MMP3), which is an enzyme that catalyzes the degradation of collagen, proteoglycans, fibronectin, laminine and el...

IL-27 plays an important role in anti-cancer activity. The -964A/G polymorphism in IL-27 gene has been implicated in susceptibility to cancer, but the results were conflicting. The aim of this study was to assess the association between this polymorphism and cancer risk. Pubmed and Wanfang database were searched for all publications concerning IL-2...

The C allele of rs3789604 (PTPN22) was a significant risk factor for LD-associated hyperthyroidism in GD patients, whereas C allele of GPR174 rs3827440 and G allele of RNASET2 rs9355610 appeared to be a protective factor for this disease.
