BACKGROUND Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (WM) is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) subtype. Little is known about the incidence and trends for this disease in the United States. METHODS Twenty-year data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program were used for this study. SEER*Stat was used for data analysis. RESULTS Of the 95,797(More)
BACKGROUND p53 plays a critical role in cellular anticancer mechanisms, and has been correlated with second primary malignancy (SPM) development. A common polymorphism in codon 72 of p53 results in an amino acid substitution and could influence p53 function. The authors hypothesized that p53 codon 72 polymorphism may be associated with risk of SPMs and(More)
P73 plays an important role in modulating cell-cycle control, inducing apoptosis, and inhibiting cell growth. A novel noncoding p73 G4C14-to-A4T14 exon 2 polymorphism was associated with risk of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). We hypothesized that p73 G4C14-to-A4T14 polymorphism modulates risk of second primary malignancies (SPM) in(More)
Glutathione S-transferase (GST) genes detoxify and metabolize carcinogens, including oxygen free radicals which may contribute to salivary gland carcinogenesis. This cancer center-based case-control association study included 166 patients with incident salivary gland carcinoma (SGC) and 511 cancer-free controls. We performed multiplex polymerase chain(More)
