Aim: To investigate the relation between polymorphisms in the interleukin 10 (IL)-10, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, transforming growth factor (TGF)-β and interferon (IFN)-γ genes and Takayasu’s arteritis in the Mexican population. Methods: A case-control study was performed to investigate the associations of IL-10, TNF-α, TGF-β and IFN-γ polymorphisms in a sample of 52 Takayasu’s arteritis patients, diagnosed according to the criteria of the American College of Rheumatology and EULAR PRINTO criteria when the patients were under 18 years of age; 60 clinically healthy unrelated Mexican individuals by the 5′ exonuclease TaqMan polymerase chain reaction. Polymorphic haplotypes were constructed after linkage disequilibrium analysis. Results: Significant differences were not found in the distribution for genotype and allele frequencies of the polymorphisms studied between healthy controls and Takayasu´s arteritis patients. Likewise, significant associations were not detected in the haplotype analysis with the different genes studied. Conclusions: These findings suggest that the polymorphisms in IL-10, TNF-α, TGF-β and IFN-γ might not contribute to the susceptibility of Takayasu´s arteritis in the Mexican population.
