Abstract

The association between interleukin-33 (IL-33) gene polymorphisms and late onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) remains controversial in previous studies. Thus, a meta-analysis was conducted to assess the association between the IL-33 polymorphisms (rs11792633 and rs7044343) and LOAD susceptibility. Crude odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were used to investigate the relationship strength. Sensitivity analysis was performed, and publication bias was estimated by the Begg's and Egger's tests. Overall, six independent studies involving 2,589 patients and 8,414 control samples met our inclusion criteria and were included in this meta-analysis. The results showed that IL-33 rs11792633 polymorphism had statistically significant correlation with a decreased risk of LOAD in heterozygous comparison model (OR =0.64, 95% CI =0.48-0.83), homozygote comparison model (OR =0.83, 95% CI =0.74-0.93), dominant model (OR =0.78, 95% CI =0.67-0.91), recessive model (OR =0.70, 95% CI =0.59-0.84), and allelic model (OR =0.79, 95% CI =0.69-0.91), which were also validated by stratified subgroup analysis. Additionally, there was an apparent association between the IL-33 rs7044343 variant and LOAD risk under four genetic models for overall population (heterozygous comparison model: OR =0.75, 95% CI =0.63-0.89; dominant model: OR =0.83, 95% CI =0.70-0.98; recessive model: OR =0.80, 95% CI =0.68-0.94; allelic model: OR =0.86, 95% CI =0.79-0.94) as well as Caucasian subgroup. In summary, our meta-analysis implicated that IL-33 gene polymorphisms rs11792633 and rs7044343 were significantly associated with the susceptibility of LOAD.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 September 2017.
All research outputs
#10,016,527
of 12,517,383 outputs
Outputs from Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
#1,644
of 2,120 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#194,034
of 263,810 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
#59
of 79 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,517,383 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,120 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,810 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 79 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
