BACKGROUND: Although 90 susceptibility loci of Crohn’s disease (CD) have been confirmed in the Asian population, susceptibility genes for perianal fistula of CD (pCD) in this population remain unknown. This study explored susceptibility genes for CD and pCD in the Han population from South China.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: In total, 490 patients diagnosed with CD between July 2012 and June 2016 at the Sixth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University were included and divided into the CD group (n=240) and the pCD group (n=250). The healthy control group was composed of 260 volunteers. Peripheral blood samples were taken, and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) locus sequencing was used to screen for susceptibility loci. SNPs were sequenced using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

RESULTS: Nine SNPs in TNFSF1 on chromosome 9 were associated with CD. Among them, the rs6478106 locus is a risk locus for CD. The distribution frequency of the T allele of the rs6478106 SNP was significantly different between cases and controls (32.49% versus 18.27%, P<0.001). Rs72553867, located in the IRGM gene on chromosome 5, rs4409764, located in the NKX2-3 gene on chromosome 10, and rs3731772, located in the AOX1 gene on chromosome 2, were susceptibility factors for pCD. Nine SNPs located in TNFSF15 on chromosome 9 were related to CD in Han individuals from Southern China.

CONCLUSIONS: The rs6478106 T allele is associated with the risk of CD in the investigated population. SNPs rs72553867 (IRGM gene), rs4409764 (NKX2-3 gene), and rs3731772 (AOX1 gene) increase the risk of pCD.
