Vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms and risk of hepatocellular carcinoma in hepatitis C-related liver cirrhosis
Abstract Background: HCV is a major risk factor for HCC; however, the exact mechanism of hepatocarcinogenesis is still not fully understood. Host genetic factors have been reported to play a significant role. Experimental studies support the tumor inhibitory effect of vitamin D on HCC cells. Several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been depicted in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene. ... Read more

Vitamin D level and Fok-I vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism in Egyptian patients with type-1 diabetes
Many cellular, preclinical and observational studies support a role of vitamin D in pathogenesis of type-1 diabetes mellitus (DM). The vitamin D receptor (VDR) locus has been studied in different populations for association with susceptibility to immune-mediated diseases, but with inconsistent findings in type-1 DM. This study aimed to investigate vitamin D status in patients with type-1 DM. We examined ... Read more
