Replication of association of IL1 gene complex members with ankylosing spondylitis in Taiwanese Chinese.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To test the association of interleukin 1 (IL1) gene family members with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), previously reported in Europid subjects, in an ethnically remote population. METHODS: 200 Taiwanese Chinese AS patients and 200 ethnically matched healthy controls were genotyped for five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and the IL1RN.VNTR, markers previously associated with AS.
