Abstract: Our study aimed to associate IL-1 beta and IL-1RN polyrnorphisms with AD disease in comparison with elderly control group from São Paulo - Brazil. We genotyped 199 Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, 165 elderly control and 122 young control samples, concerning VNTR (IL-1RN) and -511C>T and -31T>C (IL-1 beta) polymorphisms. Our findings revealed that -511C/-31T/2-repetitions VNTR haplotype had a protective effect for AD when compared to EC (p=0.005), whereas -511C/-31C/1-repetition VNTR haplotype was associated as a risk factor for AD (p=0.021). Taken together, we may suggest that there is a relevant role of IL-1 genes cluster in AD pathogenesis in this Brazilian population. (c) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
