Assessment of FOXP3 Gene Polymorphisms and Serum Interleukin 10 in Patients with ITP (FoxP3ITP)

Sohag University (Egypt) is conducting a study to investigate genetic differences in the FOXP3 gene and levels of interleukin 10 in ITP vs. non-ITP participants. It has been shown that the FOXP3 gene is related to the function of regulatory T-cells, an immune cell with important roles in autoimmune diseases. Similarly, interleukin 10 is a cytokine that regulates immune function and are released by regulatory T-cells. The study is recruiting patients with primary ITP that are 18+ years old. Participants with secondary ITP, other autoimmune disorders, or cancer will be ineligible to enrol in the study.
