INTRODUCTION: Latent tuberculosis infection diagnosis based on the release of interferon-gamma in cultures of peripheral blood cells stimulated with Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigens has replaced the tuberculin skin test in many countries with low tuberculosis prevalence. The IFN-γ production can be influenced by genetic polymorphisms, of which the IFNG+874 (rs62559044) locus is the most studied. We investigated the possible influence of the IFNG+874 A/T polymorphism on interferon-gamma test performance...

BACKGROUND: The severity of chronic chagasic cardiomyopathy (CCC), the most frequent clinical outcome of Chagas disease (CD), has been associated with cytokine-enriched heart tissue inflammation, and high serum levels of transforming growth factor (TGFβ), interferon-gamma (IFNγ), and tumour necrosis factor (TNF). Conversely, increased interleukin (IL)-10 serum concentrations have been associated with asymptomatic CD. Cytokines and cytokine-related gene polymorphisms may control cytokine expression and have been proposed to contribute to CCC outcomes...

PURPOSE: Febrile seizures (FSs) are the most common form of childhood seizures. During infection, both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines are produced. Complex interactions among immune-inflammatory process, cytokine activation, and genetic factors are involved in the pathogenesis of FSs. The association between cytokines and FSs during childhood is inconclusive due to inconsistent results reported in different studies. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine an association between cytokines and FS in children...

Background: A variety of genetic mutations are thought to be responsible for acquisition of different infections such as tuberculosis (TB). An obvious example for these variations is the link between pulmonary TB and polymorphisms within interferon-gamma receptor 1 (IFN-γ R1) gene. This project is designed to identify the role of IFN-γR1 gene polymorphism in the development of pulmonary TB among Sudanese patients attending several hospitals in Khartoum State. Methods: One hundred (n = 100) patients with active TB and fifty (n = 50) matched healthy controls were investigated for the association of two genetic polymorphisms within IFN-γR1 gene and their risk of developing pulmonary tuberculosis...

Fc-dependent effector mechanisms may contribute to antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR), and distinct gene polymorphisms modifying the function of Fc gamma receptors (FcγRs) may influence the capability of donor-specific antibodies (DSAs) to trigger inflammation. To evaluate the relevance of functional FcγR variants in late ABMR, 85 DSA-positive kidney allograft recipients, who were recruited upon antibody screening of 741 prevalent patients, were genotyped for polymorphisms in FcγRIIA (FCGR2A-H/R131 ; rs1801274), FcγRIIIA (FCGR3A-V/F158 ; rs396991), and FcγRIIIB (FCGR3B-neutrophil antigen 1 ([NA1]/NA2; rs35139848)...

Susceptibility to tuberculosis and progression of the disease depend on interactions between the bacterial agent, host immune system, and environmental and genetic factors. In this case-controlled study, we aimed to determine the role of single-nucleotide polymorphisms of interferon-gamma, interleukin-4 and interleukin-17 in susceptibility to tuberculosis. Genomic DNA was extracted from peripheral blood samples of patients and controls. The association of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in interleukin-4 (-590C/T), interleukin-17 (-152A/G) and interferon-gamma (+874T/A) was investigated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism and amplification refractory mutation system-PCR...

Interferon gamma (IFNG) plays a key role during Mycobacterium tuberculosis ( Mtb ) infection, and several polymorphisms located in its gene are associated with risk of tuberculosis in diverse populations. Nevertheless, the genetic resistance/susceptibility to tuberculosis in Argentina is unknown. The IFNG rs1861494 polymorphism (G→A) was reported to alter the binding of transcription factors to this region, influencing IFNG production. Using a case-control study, we found an association between the AA and AG genotypes and tuberculosis resistance (AA vs...

Tuberculosis is caused by mycobacterium, a potentially fatal infectious bacterium. In recent years, TB cases increased in the whole world. WHO statistics data shows that the world's annual tuberculosis incidence was 8~10 million with about 3 million deaths. Several studies have shown that susceptibility to tuberculosis may be associated with IFNGR1 gene polymorphisms. Here, we report the distribution frequency of IFNGR1 gene polymorphisms in 103 cases of IGA-negative patients and 100 cases of IGA-positive patients from China by sequencing the IFNGR1 proximal ~750 bp promoter region...

Interferon-γ (Interferon gamma, IFNG) is an important cytokine involved in providing resistance to mycobacterial diseases. Common variants of IFNG, such as IFNG +874 T/A(rs2430561), may be related to tuberculosis susceptibility, but this association has not been consistently observed. We performed an updated meta-analysis to evaluate the association between the IFNG +874 T/A (rs2430561) polymorphism and tuberculosis susceptibility. PubMed and SinoMed databases were searched up to October 2016, and odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were used to assess the association strength...

Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) cause significant pulmonary infections in humans. Researchers have reported an association between interferon-gamma receptor-1 (IFN-γR1 or IFNGR1) deficiency and susceptibility to NTM, but the relevance of polymorphism within these genes is not yet clear. In this study, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), T to C, at position-56 in NTM patients with pulmonary disease was investigated. Molecular identification of Mycobacterium isolates was performed with hsp65 genes using polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP)...
