Meta-analysis of the IL-10 promoter polymorphisms and pediatric asthma susceptibility

Z. Y. Huang, Cheng, B. J., Wan, Y., Zhou, C., Huang, Z. Y., Cheng, B. J., Wan, Y., and Zhou, C., Meta-analysis of the IL-10 promoter polymorphisms and pediatric asthma susceptibility, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

The results of previous epidemiological studies exploring the relationship between interleukin-10 (IL-10) promoter polymorphisms and susceptibility to pediatric asthma are not consistent. Therefore, we have performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to provide a more convincing conclusion. Odds ratios (OR) with their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to evaluate the strength of association between the IL-10 promoter polymorphisms and susceptibility to pediatric asthma. Publication bias was examined by Begg’s funnel plots and the Egger test.
