The role of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-308A polymorphic allele on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) outcome was documented in the previous studies, although the role of the neighboring polymorphisms was unknown. The aim of the present study was to asses the frequencies and distributions of the HLA DRB1, TNF-308 and lymphotoxin alpha (LTalpha)+252 allelic polymorphisms in NHL patients and healthy controls and their influence on NHL outcome. The HLA DRB1, TNF-308 and LTalpha +252 allelic frequencies and distributions didn't differ significantly between patients and healthy controls, thus it is unlikely that polymorphisms within the above mentioned sites confer susceptibility for lymphoma occurrence. Among the polymorphic alleles HLA DRB1*03, TNF-308A and LTalpha +252A remaining in linkage disequilibrium, TNF-308A was the only allele associated with higher TNF and its p55 and p75 receptors' plasma levels (p = 0.009, p = 0.03, and p = 0.007), lower complete remission rates (p = .006), shorter freedom from progression (FFP) and overall survival (OS) (p = 0.009 and p = 0.017, respectively). Among the polymorphic HLA DRB1 alleles, null HLA DRB1*02 was the sole allele along with the TNF-308A that remained independent factors for shorter FFP (relative risk [RR] = 1.18, p < 0.02 and RR = 1.63, p < 0.0001, respectively) and OS (RR = 1.25, p < 0.0001 and RR = 1.51, p < 0.0001, respectively). Innate immunity reflected by inherited HLA DRB1 genes repertoire and genetic propensity of the host to regulate TNF production and/or other closely linked genes influences clinical course and outcome of NHL.
