Background: Genetic polymorphisms in the TGF-beta 1 gene were shown to interfere with the transcriptional activity of the TGF-beta 1 gene, and this influences the production, secretion or activity of the TGF-beta 1 growth factor. Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) gene polymorphism is associated with risk of inflammatory diseases.
