Myocardial infarction (MI) is currently a leading cause of death worldwide, and is caused by various environmental and genetic factors. We therefore conducted a case-control study to investigate the association between polymorphisms in interleukins IL-1β, IL-8, and IL-10 and MI risk. This study recruited 260 MI patients and 285 control subjects. Genotyping of IL-1β +3954C/T, IL-8 -251T/A, IL-10 -1082A/G, and IL-10 -819C/T were assessed using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method.
The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the correlations between the estrogen receptor 1 (ESR1) gene polymorphisms PvuII (rs2234693T>C) and XbaI (rs9340799A>G) and the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Case-control studies were screened and selected from a larger group of studies that were retrieved through a comprehensive search of scientific literature databases, which was complemented by manual searches. Data from studies selected were analyzed using the Comprehensive Meta-analysis 2.0 software.
