In a previous study an association was shown between SIDS and an interleukin-10 (IL-10) genotype. That study was carried out on frozen, unfixed tissue samples, but these are difficult to obtain. Fixed samples used for pathological examination are available. The purpose of this study was to extend the previous work by establishing methods to extract and genotype DNA from fixed, wax-embedded tissues specimens and to use the results to seek confirmation of the association between IL-10 genotype and SIDS in a larger collection of SIDS babies. Using an amplification refractory mutation system-polymerase chain reaction method, a total of 38 infants were genotyped for IL-10 alleles and compared with controls. There was a significant association between the IL-10 -592*A allele and SIDS, consistent with the earlier findings. This study lends support to the hypothesis that IL-10 genotype is related to the susceptibility of babies to SIDS.
