INTRODUCTION: To investigate the IL-10 polymorphisms (-1082 G/A, -819 C/T, and -592 C/A) were associated with susceptibility to JIA.
EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A meta-analysis was conducted after database search for relevant articles (MEDLINE and EMBASE).
EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: A total of seven studies involving 1,495 patients and 1,670 controls were considered in the meta-analysis. There was no association between the IL-10 - 1082 G/A, -819 C/T, and -592 C/A polymorphisms and JIA in allele contrast and any of the genetic models (allele contrast: odds ratio [OR] 0.90, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.79-1.02, P =0.09; OR 0.97, 95% CI 0.83-1.13, P =0.68; OR 0.92, 95% CI 0.81-1.06, P =0.24, respectively). In subgroup analysis, none of the subtypes of JIA including systemic, rheumatoid factor (RF)-positive polyarticular, RF-negative polyarticular, and oligoarticular was not significantly associated with IL-10 polymorphism. Meta-analysis of the IL-10 haplotype revealed no association between GCC, ACC, and ATA haplotypes and JIA.
CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis showed that IL-10 polymorphisms were not associated with risk of JIA.
