For several years, we conducted a study of the role of genetic factors in the pathogenesis of echinococcosis among residents of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The associations of polymorphic allele’s genes of cytochrome P-450 (CYP1A1, CYP1A2), glutathione-S-transferases (GSTM, GSTT), cytokines (TNFA), the specificities of Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA-A, B, DRB1, DQB1) and blood groups AB0 with echinococcosis have been studied. Based on the analysis of the results, it was shown that genetic factors play a role in the invasion of Echinococcus granulosus with genotype G1 (common, domestic sheep).
