Association between the interleukin-6-174 G/C polymorphism and risk of ischemic stroke: a meta-analysis

X. F. Jin, Wang, D. L., Zhou, Y., and Xiong, H., Association between the interleukin-6-174 G/C polymorphism and risk of ischemic stroke: a meta-analysis, vol. 14, pp. 13076-13083, 2015.

Numerous studies have evaluated the association between the -174 G/C polymorphism in the interleukin-6 (IL6) gene and ischemic stroke risk. However, the results have been inconsistent. In this study, we performed a meta-analysis to assess the association of the IL6 -174 G/C polymorphism with ischemic stroke. Published literatures from PubMed and Embase databases were retrieved. Pooled ORs with 95%CIs were calculated using fixed- or random-effect models.
