Abstract Share this page

The 1858T variant of the protein tyrosine phosphatase gene, PTPN22, is associated with an increased risk of several autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study has been to investigate the possible association of 1858C-->T PTPN22 polymorphism and type 1 diabetes (T1D) in Caucasians from Ukraine. Overall, the distribution of 1858 PTPN22 genotypes differed significantly between the T1D patient group (n = 296) and the control group (n = 242) (P = 0.0036). When both groups were classified according to sex, the TT genotype and T allele showed a statistically significant higher frequency in T1D female patients (5.9 and 22.8%, respectively) in comparison with the female controls (0 and 11.9%) (P = 0.008 for both analyses). The patients with the TT genotype were significantly younger at the onset of T1D compared with those with genotypes TC and CC (P = 0.035 and 0.019, respectively). In our Ukrainian Caucasian cohort, we confirmed the association between T1D and the PTPN22,1858T allele.
