BACKGROUND Potential functional allele A/T single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of Interleukin 8 (IL-8) promoter -251 has been implicated in gastric cancer risk. METHODS We aimed to explore the role of A/T SNP of IL-8 -251 in the susceptibility to gastric cancer through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Each initially included article was scored for(More)
Potential functional allele T/C single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of Interleukin 10 (IL-10) promoter -819 (rs1800871) has been implicated in gastric cancer risk. We aimed to explore the role of T/C SNP of IL-10 -819 in the susceptibility to gastric cancer through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Each initially included article was scored for(More)
Cloud properties were retrieved by applying the Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) project Edition-2 algorithms to 3.5 years of Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Visible and Infrared Scanner data and 5.5 and 8 years of MODerate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data from Aqua and Terra, respectively. The cloud products are(More)
A technique we refer to as Elevation Information in Tail (EIT) has been developed to provide improved lidar altimetry from CALIPSO lidar data. The EIT technique is demonstrated using CALIPSO data and is applicable to other similar lidar systems with low-pass filters. The technique relies on an observed relation between the shape of the surface return(More)
BACKGROUND Potential xeroderma pigmentosum group D (XPD), also called excision repair cross-complimentary group two (ERCC2), Lys751Gln and Asp312Asn polymorphisms have been implicated in gastric cancer risk among different ethnicities. METHODS We aimed to explore the effect of XPD Lys751Gln and Asp312Asn polymorphisms on the susceptibility to gastric(More)
We aimed to explore the role of IL-10 -592 A/C SNP in the susceptibility to gastric cancer through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Each initially included article was scored for quality appraisal. 17 studies were eligible for the meta-analysis. We adopted the most probably appropriate genetic model (recessive model). Potential sources of(More)
Potential Cytochrome P450s (CYPs) 1A1 MspI, 1A1 Ile462Val, 1A2*1 F, and/or 1A2*1C polymorphisms have been implicated in gastric cancer risk among different ethnicities. We aimed to explore the effect of CYP 1A1 MspI, 1A1 Ile462Val, 1A2*1 F, and/or 1A2*1C polymorphisms on the susceptibility to gastric cancer among different ethnicities through a systematic(More)
