IL-16 plays an important role in affect the secretion of tumor-related inflammatory cytokines. We aimed to assess the role of interleukin-16 (IL-16) rs4778889 T/C and rs11556218 T/G polymorphisms in the occurrence of renal cell cancer (RCC). This study is composed of 274 RCC patients and 274 control subjects. Genotyping of polymorphisms was performed using polymerase chain reaction combined with restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. All statistical analysis was carried out by the SPSS statistical software package, version 16.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA).

This study aims to investigate the correlation between allergic sensitization of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients and their serum interleukin (IL)-16 levels. AD patients, healthy volunteers, and patients with psoriasis (N = 80, 35, 20, respectively) were tested for serum IL-16 and total and specific IgE levels by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, along with eosinophil counts. Serum allergen-specific IgE levels were determined, and skin-prick testing conducted in a subgroup of 45 AD patients.
