Polymorphisms of Toll Like Receptors in the Genetics of Severe RSV Associated Diseases

Toll like receptors (TLRs) are an essential part of the innate immune response. So far, ten different TLRs were identified in humans. They recognize a wide range of microbial and viral pathogens ... others. Thus we were interested whether other TLRs are also involved in the genetics of severe RSV infection. We genotyped 19 polymorphisms in the autosomal TLRs, these are TLR1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9 and 10
