OBJECTIVE: Interleukin-10 (IL-10) gene polymorphisms might play a part in the development of some malignant tumors. It has been linked with high bcl-2 expression in some B-lymphocyte malignancies. Its relationship with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) development is still under investigation. Other studies have linked Splicing Factor 3B Subunit 1 (SF3B1) mutations to a poorer prognosis of CLL. From this context, we have great interest to investigate the effect of both IL-10 (1082G/A) and SF3B1 (2098A/G) gene polymorphisms on CLL in this study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were analyzed for IL-10 (1082G/A) and SF3B1 (2098A/G) gene polymorphisms by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction in 80 newly diagnosed CLL patients and 80 controls. RESULTS: Our results showed that the IL-10 (G/A) genotype, IL-10 (A/A) genotype and IL-10 A allele and SF3B1 (A/G) genotype and SF3B1 G allele were increased significantly in the patients group compared with the control group. CONCLUSION: IL-10 gene polymorphisms (1082 G/A and A/A) and A alleles might be associated with increased risk of CLL development compared with G/G genotypes and G alleles and are a probable risk factor for the disease. Also, our study demonstrated that SF3B1 (2098A/G) polymorphisms and G allele are related to and might be a causative factor for CLL.
