|Title:||The role of the CCR5 Delta32 polymorphism in abdominal aortic aneurysms.|
|Citation:||INT J IMMUNOGENET, 2009, 36 (4), pp. 199-205|
|Abstract:||C-C chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) is involved in the regulation of the inflammatory response. Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) may arise as the result of a chronic inflammatory process which is influenced by genetic predisposition. The CCR5 gene is associated with a 32 base pair deletion (the Delta32 polymorphism). The aim of this study was to investigate the role of the CCR5 Delta32 polymorphism in the development of AAA.|
