RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the correlation between IL-10 gene polymorphisms and hepatitis B infection. METHODS: Tag single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were used to investigate the relationship between IL-10 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection by comparing 996 chronic HBV infection cases to 301 acute infection controls. RESULTS: This study found that rs3024490 G/T allele, located in the intron 1 region and highly prevalent in Chinese populations, was significantly different between the chronic HBV infection cases and the acute infection controls in single allele analysis, genetic models analysis, and haplotypes analysis. CONCLUSIONS: This suggested that the rs3024490 within IL-10 was associated with susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B in a Chinese Han population.

RESUMO

Thus far, many studies have evaluated the correlation between MBL2 gene polymorphisms and hepatitis B infection. Tag single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were used to investigate the relationship between MBL2 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection by comparing 996 chronic HBV infection cases to 301 acute infection controls. There was no significant correlation between rs2120131, rs4935047, and rs7095891 and chronic HBV infection. This suggested that the new SNPs within MBL2 were not associated with susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B in a Chinese Han population.

RESUMO

AIM: To identify the relationship between the tagging single nucleotide polymorphism sites (tagSNPs) of the Interleukin-18 (IL-18) gene and genetic susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B virus infection in Chinese patients. METHODS: Five hundred and one cases of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and 301 HBV natural clearance controls were studied. Two tagSNPs in the IL-18 gene (rs1946518A/C and rs574424C/G) were genotyped by the Multiplex Snapshot technique. The genotype and allele frequencies were calculated and analyzed. RESULTS: In the genotypes of rs1946518, the AA type was present at a higher frequency in the patients compared to those in the controls. Odds ratio (OR) of the AA genotype for the comparison with that of the AC and the CC genotype was 1.537 (95% confidence intervals (CI): 1.116-2.218, P = 0.009 < 0.025). In phenotypes, the allele C at rs1946518 was of a significantly lower frequency in the patients with chronic hepatitis B than that in the controls (P = 0.017 < 0.025). OR of the allele A for the comparison with that of the allele C was 1.279 (95% CI: 1.045-1.567). As for the rs574424 genotypes, no significant difference in this genotype distribution or in this allele frequency between the patients and the control subjects was observed. No significant difference in the haplotype frequencies between the patients with chronic hepatitis B and HBV natural clearance individuals was displayed. CONCLUSION: The data suggest that genotype AA and the allele A of the IL-18 at position rs1946518 are closely associated with the resistance to chronic hepatitis B and may be the dangerous gene. However, no statistical association was found between polymorphisms of rs574424 for IL-18 and hepatitis B.

RESUMO

AIM: To investigate the association between three tag single nucleotide polymorphisms (tagSNPs) in interferon regulatory factors (IRF3) and the genetic susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. METHODS: We performed a case-control study of 985 Chinese cases of chronic HBV infection and 294 self-limiting HBV-infected individuals as controls. Three tagSNPs in IRF3 (rs10415576, rs2304204, rs2304206) were genotyped with the Multiplex SNaPshot technique. The genotype and allele frequencies were calculated and analyzed. RESULTS: The three SNPs showed no significant genotype/allele associations with chronic HBV infection. Overall allele P values were: rs10415576, P = 0.0908, odds ratio (OR) [95% confidence interval (CI)] = 1.1798 (0.9740-1.4291); rs2304204, P = 0.5959, OR (95% CI) = 1.0597 (0.8552-1.3133); rs2304206, P = 0.8372, OR (95% CI) = 1.0250 (0.8097-1.2976). Overall genotype P values were: rs10415576, P = 0.2106; rs2304204, P = 0.8458; rs2304206, P = 0.8315. There were no statistically significant differences between patients with chronic HBV infection and controls. Haplotypes generated by these three SNPs were also not significantly different between the two groups. CONCLUSION: The three tagSNPs of IRF3 are not associated with HBV infection in the Han Chinese population.

RESUMO

AIM: To investigate the association between the programmed death-1(PD-1) polymorphisms and genetic susceptibility of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in Chinese patients. METHODS: Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), PD-1.1 G > A and PD-1.2 G > A, were genotyped in 539 patients with chronic HBV infection and 353 other family members (HbsAg-) from 256 nuclear families using polymerase chain reactiorestriction fragment length polymorphisms assay. The associations between PD-1 polymorphisms and genetic susceptibility of chronic HBV infection were analyzed usng the family-based association analysis method. RESULTS: No association or linkage was detected among 539 patients. Univariate (single-marker) family-based association tests demonstrated that PD-1 genotypes, alleles and transmitted haplotypes are not associated with chronic HBV infection (all with P value more than 0.05). Transmission/disequilibrium test and sibship disequilibrium test analysis showed no excess of the alleles from heterozygous parents to affected offspring (P = 0.688880, P = 1.000000 respectively). CONCLUSION: The data demonstrated that PD-1.1 and PD-1.2 polymorphisms are not associated with chronic HBV infection in Chinese patients.

RESUMO

A relationship between chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and interleukin-10 (IL-10) gene polymorphisms has been reported with controversial results in different studies. In an effort to solve this controversy, we quantitatively summarized ten studies on this relationship by means of meta-analysis. Our analysis included ten case-control studies with 992 cases of chronic HCV infection and 1,123 controls. Analyses were performed with STATA version 9.0. The results showed that the IL-10 -1082GG genotype significantly increased the risk for persistent HCV infection (AA vs. GG: OR = 0.680, 95% CI = 0.489-0.947, P = 0.022; AG vs. GG: OR = 0.608, 95% CI = 0.439-0.840, P = 0.003; GG vs. AG + AA: OR = 1.570, 95% CI = 1.160-2.123, P = 0.003), but no statistically significant differences were observed between cases and controls for IL-10 -819C/T and IL-10 -592C/A polymorphisms (P > 0.05). In conclusion, this meta-analysis suggested that the IL-10 -1082GG genotype was associated with increased susceptibility for chronic HCV infection.
