Polymorphisms in interleukin genes (IL-6 and IL-10) are involved in the pathogenesis of breast cancer. This study investigated polymorphisms in the promoter regions of IL-6 (-174G/C) and IL-10 (-1082G/A) through a case-control study employing 80 female subjects who were pathologically diagnosed with breast cancer. All patients received follow-up care at the Mansoura University Hospital, Mansoura, Egypt. We included another 80 females (controls) from the same population, showing no signs of malignancy.
We conducted a case-control study to investigate the role of three common single nucleotide polymorphisms of IL-10 (-592G/A, -819T/C, and -1082A/C) in the development of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The study included 173 HBV-related HCC patients and 182 healthy controls. A polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay was applied to assess the sequence variants of interest.
A rat model of ventilation-induced lung injury (VILI) during anesthesia was generated to investigate the potential role and possible mechanism of interleukin-10 (IL-10) and recombinant human keratinocyte growth factor-2 (rhKGF-2) in protecting anesthetized rats against VILI. A total of 50 male SD rats were randomly divided into 5 groups (N = 10 each): control, VILI, IL-10, rhKGF-2, and IL-10 + rhKGF-2. The VILI (model) group was generated via ventilation, with a tidal volume of 20 mL/kg.
