TNFA-308G>A polymorphism influences the TNF-α response to altered vaginal flora
Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide
Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha
The TNFA-308G>A polymorphism influences the local TNF-alpha response to altered vaginal microflora. This suggests that the nature of the host response to microbial invasion in the lower female genital is genetically determined.
