Association between IL-21 polymorphism and systemic lupus erythematosus: a meta-analysis
“Association between IL-21 polymorphism and systemic lupus erythematosus: a meta-analysis”, vol. 14, pp. 9595-9603, 2015.,
Several case-control studies have been conducted to investigate the association between Interleukin-21 (IL-21) polymorphisms and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) susceptibility, and most of the studies focused on IL-21 rs907715 and rs2221903 polymorphisms. Given the inconsistent results from these studies, the present meta-analysis aimed to obtain a more precise estimate of the association between IL-21 rs907715 and rs2221903 polymorphisms and SLE. Studies regarding these specific polymorphisms and SLE were retrieved from PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, CNKI, and CBM.
