Interaction between interleukin-10 (IL-10) polymorphisms and dietary fibre in relation to risk of colorectal cancer in a Danish case-cohort study

BMC Cancer, 05/18/2012

The authors found interaction between Interleukin–10 (IL–10) and dietary fibre in colorectal cancer (CRC) carcinogenesis. High intake of fibre seems to protect against CRC among individuals with IL10 related genetic susceptibility to CRC. This finding should be evaluated in other prospective and population–based cohorts with different ethnic groups.
