Four novel mutations detected in the exon 1 of MBL2 gene associated with rheumatic heart disease in South Indian patients

  The aim of this study was to determine the genetic variations associated with the mannose-binding lectin 2 (MBL2) gene in rheumatic heart disease (RHD) patients in the Vellore region, South India. This study included 50 patients with RHD and equal number of age and sex matched healthy controls. The genomic DNA was extracted from peripheral blood, to find out the genetic variations if any in MBL2 gene....

Interleukin-1b gene polymorphism and its association with chronic periodontitis in South Indian population

  Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1b) is a potent inflammatory mediator and an important polymorphism in the locus +3954 (C/T) of the human IL1B gene has been shown to affect the levels of this cytokine. This functional polymorphism has been associated with the establishment of inflammatory diseases, including periodontal disease, in European, Asian and North American populations. The aim of this study was to...
