Children, who are born with low birth weight (less 2500 g) are known to have an increased risk of developing lipid disturbances and atherosclerosis in later live.PPAR alpha activity could play a regulatory role in the pathogenesis of hyperlipidemia and a modulatory role in the control of inflammatory response.The aim of this study was to determine whether the presence of polymorphism in gene of peroxisome proliferators-activated re...

The clinical presentation of GravesÂ’ disease (GD) depends on the combination of environmental and genetic factors. The CTLA-4 and CD28, ICOS genes encoding negative and positive regulator of the T-lymphocyte immune response, are candidate genes for conferring susceptibility to thyroid autoimmunity.Polymorphisms in genes: CTLA-4: g.319C>T (rs5742909), c.49A>G (rs231775), g.*642AT(8_33), CT60 (g.*6230G>A, rs3087243), Jo31...
