Allergic rhinitis; Interleukin-6; Polymorphism

The aim of this study was to investigate the role played by the IL-6 rs1800795 (-174G/C) and rs1800796 (-572G>C) polymorphisms in the susceptibility to allergic rhinitis in a Chinese population. A total of 265 patients with allergic rhinitis and 265 controls from our hospital were enrolled in this study. The IL-6 rs1800795 and rs1800796 polymorphisms were genotyped by ... more

MicroRNA; miR-494; Pancreatic cancer; Prognosis; Survival

MicroRNA-494 (miR-494) expression is aberrant in various types of human cancer. However, the prognostic value of miR-494 in pancreatic cancer remains unclear. The level of miR-494 expression was determined in 99 pairs of primary pancreatic cancer and their corresponding, adjacent non-tumor tissues by using quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. We also analyzed the ... more

Cancer; Long non-coding RNA; MALAT-1; Prognosis; Survival

The long non-coding RNA MALAT-1 plays an important role in cancer prognosis. The present research aimed to elucidate its precise predictive value in various human carcinomas. A quantitative meta-analysis was performed by searching PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library (most recently, January 2015) databases, and extracting data from studies that investigated the ... more

Interleukin-6; Polymorphism; Prostate cancer

We investigated the role of two functional polymorphisms, IL-6-174G>C (rs1800795) and IL-6-572C>G (rs1800796), in the development of prostate cancer. A total of 212 consecutive primary prostate cancer patients and 236 control subjects were recruited between May 2012 and May 2014. The IL-6-174G>C (rs1800795) and IL-6-572C>G (rs1800796) polymorphisms were assessed by polymerase ... more

Cardiopulmonary bypass; Interleukin-6; Interleukin-8; Meta-analysis; Sevoflurane

This study aimed to investigate the effect of sevoflurane on serum levels of interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8 in patients who underwent cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The strength of the association between sevoflurane treatment and serum level of IL-6 and IL-8 was determined in patients who underwent CPB by summary standard mean differences (SMDs); 95% confidence interval (CI) was used. In ... more

Cancer risk; Interleukin-6; Polymorphism

The -572G/C polymorphism in interleukin-6 (IL-6) gene is associated with the development of cancer. However, previous studies have shown conflicting results; therefore, the association must be verified by an appropriate meta-analysis. For this purpose, we performed a literature search of the PubMed database to identify all reports on association between the IL-6 -572G/C ... more

Interleukin-6; Meta-analysis; Polymorphism; Psoriasis

Previous studies examining the association between interleukin-6 (IL-6) -174G/C polymorphism and psoriasis risk have produced inconsistent results. The aim of this study was to offer a comprehensive review of the association between IL-6 -174G/C polymorphism and psoriasis risk through a meta-analysis. Literature search of PubMed and Embase databases was conducted to identify all eligible ... more

Preeclampsia is a common condition unique to pregnant women. Previous studies have suggested that several cytokines may contribute to defective placental invasion and endothelial damage in this condition. We investigated the influence of four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the promoters of IL-6 (-572G/C, -597G/A, and -174G/C) and IL-10 (-592A/C) on susceptibility to preeclampsia in ... more

The aim of the present study is to explore the effect of IL-6 gene polymorphisms on the development of keloid scar (KS) in the Chinese Han population. Genotyping of IL-6 was performed by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism assays (PCR-RFLP). Serum level of IL-6 was measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Results indicated ... more
