Background and Objectives Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an important immunoregulatory cytokine in. It is part of a balanced network of cytokines and can be cancer promoting (immunosuppressive; stimulation of cell proliferation) or cancer inhibiting. The present study aimed at investigating possible association between IL10 (-1082G/A) gene promoter polymorphism in a sample of Egyptian Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients and its relation to other prognostic factors. Design and Methods A case control study was carried out on fifty NHL patients at first diagnosis and twenty age and sex- matched normal controls. Results There was statistically insignificant correlation between IL10 (-1082G/A) genotype and age (P = 0.631), ESR (P = 0.087), serum LDH (P = 0.623), serum albumin (P = 0.108) serum β2 microglobulin (P = 0.578), and hemoglobin (P = 0.696) in patient group. The frequency of IL10-1082G allele was found to be higher in patients with NHL(28.3%) as compared with control subjects (12.5%)(P = 0.298) , with a higher frequency of IL-10-1082GG/GA genotypes in the former population (13.1%, 30.4%) versus (5.0%, 15.0%) χ2P = 0.073. Conclusion The frequency of IL10-1082G allele was found to be higher in patients with NHL as compared with healthy controls, which is translated into a higher frequency of IL-10-1082GG/GA genotypes, thus may be associated with higher risk of developing NHL. There was no significant correlation between IL-10 polymorphism with other prognostic factors.
