Prognostic value of plasma interleukin-6 concentrations and the -174 G > C and -572 G > C promoter polymorphisms of the interleukin-6 gene in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis.

Abstract:

The present study was performed to investigate the prognostic value of plasma interleukin-6 (IL-6) concentrations and promoter polymorphisms of the IL-6 gene in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis. Two hundred and eight patients with myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis were included and followed for 2-5 years. Plasma concentrations of IL-6 were measured at admission and 48 h after admission. Genotyping for the -174 G > C and -572 G > C IL-6 po...
