Association of VEGFA promoter polymorphisms rs699947 and rs35569394 with diabetic retinopathy among North-Central Indian subjects: a case-control study

CONCLUSIONS: Results of our study support the hypothesis that D-allele and DD-genotype of rs35569394 have deleterious effect on the progression of DR. C-allele had skewed frequency towards DR III subjects owing to strong linkage disequilibrium between C-allele (rs699947) and D-allele (rs35569394).PMID:34693874 | DOI:10.1080/13816810.2021.1992786
