The IL-1 gene family and bone involvement in celiac disease
Celiac disease (CD) is associated with decreased bone mineral mass. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial since both systemic and local mechanisms may play a role. Our objective was to determine whether single-nucleotide ...
Lack of evidence supporting a role of TMC4-rs641738 missense variant - MBOAT7- intergenic downstream variant - In the Susceptibility to Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
Current knowledge on the genetic basis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) suggests that variants contributing not only to the disease predisposition but histological severity as well are located in genes that ...
Association of IL18 genetic polymorphisms with Chagas disease in Latin American populations
(Public Library of Science, 2019-10)
Host genetic factors have been suggested to play an important role in the susceptibility to Chagas disease. Given the influence of interleukin 18 (IL-18) in the development of the disease, in the present study, we analyzed ...
Genetic polymorphisms of IL17A associated with Chagas disease: Results from a meta-analysis in Latin American populations
(Nature Research, 2020-12)
Genetic factors and the immunologic response have been suggested to determine the susceptibility against the infection and the outcome of Chagas disease. In the present study, we analysed three IL17A genetic variants ...
