There is structural damage to myelin and secondary immune injury in the development of delayed encephalopathy after acute carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning (DEACMP). In order to assess the role of genetic factors in this mechanism, we studied the association between tumor necrosis factor-α308 (TNF-α308) and myelin basic protein (MBP) 5ꞌ-side tetranucleotide repetitive sequence (TGGA) n gene polymorphism and DEACMP.
