Abstract

<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> The main objective of this work was to identify allelic variants of cytokine genes at the polymorphic positions of G-308A TNFА, T-330G IL-2, С-590Т IL-4, С-703Т IL-5, and C-592A IL-10, and to assess their contribution to predisposition and resistance of human patients to progression of viral hepatitis C infection. We observed significant increase in frequency of T/G T-330G IL-2 genotype in HCV-infected patients, as compared to healthy individuals. Distribution analysis of C-590T promoter alleles of the IL-4 gene displayed a wide overrepresentation of C/T genotype among HCV-infected patients. Likewise, we have shown the G/A genotype of G-308A TNFA to be highly frequent in the group of HCV-infected patients, whereas this genotype was rare in the sample of healthy persons. When analysing allelic frequencies of cytokine genes at these polymorphic positions, we get an opportunity to predict predisposal for the chronic variant of viral hepatitis C in HCV-infected persons.</p
