Recent studies have revealed an association between interleukin 28B (IL28B) and response to IFN-alpha treatment in hepatitis C patients. Here we investigated the influence of IL28B polymorphisms in the response to interferon-beta (IFNβ) in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. We genotyped two SNPs of the IL28B gene (rs8099917 and rs12979860) in 588 MS patients classified into responders (n=281) and non-responders (n=307) to IFNβ. Combined analysis of the study cohorts showed no significant associations between SNPs rs8099917 and rs12979860 and the response to treatment. These findings do not support a role of IL28B polymorphisms in the response to IFNβ in MS patients.
