Background: The pathogenesis of renal scarring (RS) after first febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) in children is multifactorial. In addition to well-known risk factors, a role for genetic predisposition has been suggested. Aims: To determine whether deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) polymorphisms at the plasminogen activator inhibitor -1 (PAI-1) gene were associated with evolution to RS following a febrile UTI in infants. Materials and Methods: Our research included 100 infants, 84 girls and 16 boys, ages up to 1 year with a first febrile UTI, increased inflammatory parameters and positive urine culture treated at the Pediatric Clinic II of the University Clinical Center Sarajevo (UCCS)...

Objective: Genetic and environmental factors are important in the development of the multiple sclerosis (MS). Vitamin D shows its effects on the immune system with the vitamin D receptor (VDR) in the nucleus. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the VDR gene can lead to alterations in vitamin D functions and metabolism.Taq I, Apa I, Fok I and Bsm I polymorphisms and MS associations have been investigated in many studies. VDR gene polymorphism has not been previously studied in patients with familial MS...
