Genetic variant in IL-33 is associated with idiopathic recurrent miscarriage in Chinese Han population.

ABSTRACT: Recurrent miscarriage (RM) is the occurrence of repeated pregnancies that end in miscarriage of the fetus before 20 weeks of gestation. At least 50% of the RM patients are considered idiopathic. High IL-33 levels are critical in early pregnancy and impact the outcome of subsequent pregnancies. However, the association of polymorphisms of IL-33 with idiopathic RM is still unclear. The present study was initiated to investigate whether IL-33 polymorphisms are risk factors for idiopathic RM in Chinese Han population. Study subjects comprised of 321 cases and 384 controls. Five polymorphisms (rs10435816, rs16924159, rs16924171, rs1929992, rs1332290) in IL-33 and serum IL-33 concentrations were assessed. rs16924159 variant exhibits significant association with RM in additive and recessive genetic model (additive model P = 0.015, recessive model P = 0.007). In contrast, rs10435816, rs16924171, rs1929992 and rs1332290 are not significantly associated with RM. Serum IL-33 levels are significantly lower in RM cases than in control (173.51 ± 94.12 versus. 200.97 ± 110.06 (pg/ml), P = 4.57 × 10(-4)). There are lower levels of serum IL-33 in rs16924159 homozygous mutant (AA) than homozygous wild-type (GG) in this study population, including cases and control groups (172.18 ± 103.01 versus. 205.82 ± 119.01 (pg/ml), P = 0.006). Reduced IL-33 levels and rs16924159 IL-33 variant may contribute to the pathogenesis of idiopathic RM in Chinese Han population.
