At clinical polymorphism due to SNPs there is an incorrect expression of proteins or the enzymes participating in pathogenesis of chronic adenoiditis that causes influence of genetic polymorphism on a disease phenotype that is on the clinical polymorphism.
Thus relevance of studying of polymorphism of gene IL-1[beta] is caused by search of predictive criteria of chronization of the inflammatory process at adenoiditis.
The study is also a part of the thesis work "Optimization of prevention and methods of chronic adenoiditis treatment".
Chronic adenoiditis diagnosis was made on the basis of anamnesis data and clinical, epidemiological, endoscopic, radiological, immunological data.

Our research has demonstrated not only the clinical significance of the homozygous carriage of the mutant polymorphic allele variant 3954 * C in chronic adenoiditis in children, but also from the perspective of personalized medicine importance to develop algorithms for risk stratification, which are essential for optimizing the medical check-up, the development of active secondary preventive measures, individual approach to the treatment strategy.
