Abstract/OtherAbstract:
IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) gene polymorphism was examined in 95 Israeli preterm newborns and compared to that of adult volunteers. The genotype was determined using PCR amplification of the variable region of intron 2 of the IL-1ra gene. The IL-1raA1 allele was found to be predominant in the two groups. However, a significant higher frequency of IL-1raA2 allele was found in preterm newborns. The difference was mainly due to higher proportion of homozygous for IL-1raA2 in the preterm neonates (19%) as compared with adults (7%). No such association could be demonstrated between IL-1raA2 allele and severe sepsis in preterm newborns. The frequency of IL-1raA2 allele among preterms with a septic episode did not differ significantly from that found in newborns without sepsis. The results suggest an association between the IL-1ra genotype and the incidence of premature delivery.
