  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between the polymorphisms of genes involving in drug metabolism and transport as well as immunological reaction and the risk of anti-tuberculosis drug-induced liver injury(ATLI)in Chinese. METHODS: This 1∶4 matched case-control study was conducted by using the data from a cohort study of Anti-tuberculosis Drugs Induced Adverse Reactions in National Tuberculosis Prevention and Control Progtam of China. Genes involving in three phase of drug metabolism and transport as well as related immunological reaction were chosen and single nucleotide polymorphisms(SNPs)were genotyped by TaqMan allele discrimination technology. Lasso regression and multivariate conditional logistic regression analysis were used to select susceptible genes. RESULTS: A total of 33 genes with 75 SNPs were tested. The combined results of Lasso and regression logistic regression analysis showed that genetic polymorphism of SLCO1B1 rs4149014, HSPA1L rs2227956, STAT3 rs1053023 and IL-6 rs2066992 were significantly associated with the risk of ATLI(P<0.05). CONCLUSION: SLCO1B1, HSPA1L, STAT3 and IL-6 might be the susceptibility genes of drug induced liver injury in patients receiving anti-tuberculosis treatment.
