Table 6 Distribution of alleles in the patients with cancer.

From: Association of IL-1beta gene polymorphism with cachexia from locally advanced gastric cancer

   Non-cachexia (n = 123) Cachexia (n = 91) P
IL-1β-31 CC 26 12  
  CT 57 44

  T allele 137 (55.7 %) 114(62.6 %) 0.194
IL-1β-511 CC 31 24  
  CT 55 42  
  TT 37 25
