MBL2 Gene Polymorphism were investigated in patients with viral Hepatitis B and C. No significant differences in allele frequencies for any polymorphism were observed between patients and controls.
Objective: Mannose-Binding Lectin (MBL) has become a popular molecule in investigations on basic and clinical Gastroenterology and contributed to new approaches to the understanding of infectious and immune diseases associated with intestine and liver. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between codon 54 polymorphisms in MBL2 gene coding MBL and predisposition to fibrosis in patients with viral Hepatitis B and C.
