Abstract

Background. We have studied the effects of interferon (IFN)-γ allelic variations on expression levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines and on long-term inflammatory status in haemodialysis patients. Methods. Genotyping was performed in 123 patients for single nucleotide polymorphisms in the first intron of the IFN-γ gene (+874 T/A). They were prospectively followed for 2 years. Cytokine mRNA levels in whole blood cells (detected by real time (RT)-PCR technique) and serum C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations were compared in patient groups with different IFN-γ genotypes. Serum CRP was evaluated every month and inflammatory state was defined as percent of abnormal values (above 5 mg/l) over total determinations. Of the total, 102 patients survived and completed 24±1 monthly CRP determinations. The IFN-γ ±874 A/A, 'low-producer' genotype was associated with decreased (P
