A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem

Polymorphisms of IL-4 and IL-4R are associated to some demographic characteristics of differentiated thyroid cancer patients but are not determinants of risk in the Brazilian population.

IL-4 is known to present abnormal expression in thyroid tumors and SNPs in the IL-4 and its receptor IL-4R genes are associated to risk and mortality of various types of cancer.In order to evaluate their role in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), we investigated genetic frequencies of two IL-4 promoter SNPs (rs2070874 C>T, rs2243250 C>T) and four non-synonymous SNPs of the IL-4R gene (rs1805010 A>G, rs1805012 C>T, rs1805013 C>T, rs1801275 A>G) in 300 DTC patients matched to 300 controls. All patients were managed according to current guidelines and followed-up for a period of 12-252 months (69.20 ± 52.70 months).Although none of the six investigated SNPs showed association with risk of DTC, rs1805010 was associated with age of diagnosis and the SNPs rs1805012 and rs1801275 were associated to gender. Further, in-silico analysis showed that all these three SNPs were able to cause decreased stability of the protein. We were not able to demonstrate any other association to clinical features of aggressiveness or to patients’ prognosis.These findings indicate that although genetic variants in IL-4 and IL-4R do not influence the risk or outcome of DTC patients, their influence on the behavior of thyroid tumors deserves further investigation.
