The purpose of this hospital-based case-control study was to assess whether the interleukin (IL)-17 rs2275913 genetic variation can influence susceptibility to gastric cancer. Samples from a total of 202 gastric cancer patients and 237 controls were collected from the Linyi People’s Hospital between March 2013 and March 2015. The IL-17 rs2275913 gene polymorphism was identified by polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism.
The aim of this study was to observe the effect of interleukin (IL)-17 on early immune response and inflammation in the lungs of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-infected mice. Specific pathogen-free BALB/c mice were randomly assigned to control, RSV-infected, RSV-infected with phosphate-buffered saline, and RSV-infected + IL-17 intervention groups. The RSV infection model was set up by nasal mucosa immunization. The intervention group was provided with restructured IL-17 (intranasal).
