Association of TAP1/TAP2 gene polymorphism with inflammatory urogenital diseases combined with joint diseases



Association of TAP1/TAP2 gene polymorphism with inflammatory urogenital diseases combined with joint diseases



Terapevticheskii Arkhiv 71(11): 41-45



To study association of TAP1/TAP2 gene polymorphism with urogenital infections combined with joint lesions. Of 139 patients examined 45 ones had inflammation caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (17 had joint disease), 42 had Mycoplasma hominis infection (joint lesions in 17 cases). Method of amplification was used on the basis of specific primers (ARMS). Patients infected with C. trachomatis significantly more frequently had allele TAP1-02011 and TAP2-0201 (RR = 18.5, p < 0.01 and RR = 4.61, p < 0.05, respectively). Joint lesion in patients with chlamydial infection was associated with allele TAP1-02011 (RR = 11.92, p < 0.05). In mycoplasmosis association with joint lesions there is a significant link of joint syndrome with heterogeneous combination threonine/alanine in gene TAP2 position 565 (RR = 4.22, p < 0.05). The findings can be used for predicting the joint syndrome development in patients with urogenital infection.
