Association between IL2/IL21 and SH2B3 polymorphisms and risk of celiac disease: a meta-analysis
“Association between IL2/IL21 and SH2B3 polymorphisms and risk of celiac disease: a meta-analysis”, vol. 14, pp. 13221-13235, 2015.,
Celiac disease (CD) is a common autoimmune disorder characterized by heightened immunological response to ingested gluten. Certain gene polymorphisms of IL2/IL21 (rs6822844 and rs6840978) and SH2B3 (rs3184504) may influence susceptibility to CD, although the effects remain unclear. We performed a meta-analysis of the associations between rs6822844, rs6840978, and rs3184504 polymorphisms and CD risk. PubMed, EMBASE, and the China National Knowledge Infrastructure were searched.
