Córdoba-Lanús E, Baz-Dávila R, de-Torres JP, Rodríguez-Pérez MC, Maca-Meyer N, Varo N, et al.TNFA-863 polymorphism is associated with a reduced risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a replication study. BMC Med Genet. 2011 Oct 10;12:132.
We replicated the previously reported association between the TNFA -863 SNP and COPD. TNFA -863A allele may confer a protective effect to the susceptibility to the disease in the Spanish population
