This present review summarises recent results investigating the role of certain cytokine gene polymorphisms, including TNF, IFN, IL-6, IL-10 and IL1 Ra, in allogeneic stem cell transplantation. The review discusses their role in predicting outcome and the development of a genetic risk index for Graft versus Host Disease in HLA matched sibling transplants. By the comparative use of an in vitro human skin explant model initial results suggest that certain cytokine gene polymorphisms may be associated with more severe disease.
