 Allele and genotype frequencies of the CD14 C-260T and the TLR4 A896G polymorphisms in ankylosing spondylitis patients and controls

AS patients (n = 113)Controls (n = 170)p
No significant difference was found between patients and controls in the frequencies of the carriership of the CD14-260T (OR 0.65; 95% CI 0.37 to 1.15) or TLR4 896G (OR 1.68; 95% CI 0.67 to 4.19) allele.
