Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a multi-factor disease with a key role of genetic component in its genesis. Development of osteoporosis and articular destruction is attributed with overexpression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and reduced production of anti-inflammatory ones. In this work probable associations of IFN-?, IL-1?, IL-1?, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-18 and TNF? alleles with rheumatoid arthritis were studied among Russian ethnic group. Methods: A total of 69 Russian ethnical group patients with RA (cases) and 133 healthy control individuals (controls) were genotyped for variants in 8 cytokines genes (IFN-?, IL-1?, IL-1?, IL-4,IL-6, IL-10, IL-18 and TNF?). Individual genotype and haplotype frequencies were compared between cases and controls. Odd ratios were calculated with asymptotic 95% confidence intervals and P values less than 0.05 were considered statistically significant. Results: The distribution of studied alleles of cytokine genes in Russian population is similar to other European populations. Genotype, allele and haplotype frequencies were equally distributed between RA cases and controls for IFN-? (rs2430561), IL-1? (rs1800587), (rs17561), IL-1? (rs1143627), (rs16944), (rs1143634), IL-10 (rs1800871), IL- 18 (rs1946518) and TNF? (rs361525). Meanwhile, significant associations (?<0.05) were found between RA cases and controls for IL-4 (rs2243250) T/T, IL-6 (rs1800795) G/G, IL-10 (rs1800872) A/A, IL-10 (rs1800896) G/A, IL-18 (rs187238) G/C and TNF? (rs1800629) G/A. Conclusions: These results indicate that common variants of the IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-18 and TNF? may significantly contribute to RA susceptibility.
