Association between RAGE gene polymorphisms and ulcerative colitis susceptibility: a case-control study in a Chinese Han population

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an immune-related disease with genetic predisposition. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of three polymorphisms in the receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) gene with UC risk in a Chinese population. This case-control study involved 72 UC patients and 479 age- and gender-matched healthy controls. Genotyping was performed using the polymerase chain reaction-ligase detection reaction method. Data were analyzed using the Haplo.stats program.

Expression and clinical significance of CD4+ CD45+ peripheral blood T cells in patients with ulcerative colitis

The objectives of this study were to explore the expression of peripheral blood CD4+CD45+ T cells in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and determine its clinical value. We selected 80 patients with UC from the First Affiliated Hospital of Liaoning Medical University from March 2012 to December 2013. Of these, 27 had mildly active, 28 moderately active, and 25 severely active UC. We also recruited 80 subjects to constitute the healthy control group.
