To examine whether urinary tract nerve growth factor (uNGF) could be a biomarker for overactive bladder (OAB) symptom, we conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis of 8 case-control studies. In all the studies considered, patients with OAB symptom had a higher uNGF level compared to healthy people. In addition, patients had a significantly lower uNGF level(More)
To evaluate the association between paired box 9 (PAX9) gene polymorphisms and tooth agenesis in isolated humans, we performed a comprehensive meta-analysis. We examined 6 case-control studies, with a total of 855 hypodontia cases and 1201 healthy controls. The G allele and G carrier (AG + GG) of A1031G were positively associated with hypodontia(More)
We conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis of 4 case-control studies to explore the association between polymorphisms of Msh homeobox 1 (MSX1) and transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) genes and hypodontia. A total of 643 tooth agenesis cases and 733 healthy controls were included in this study. The meta-analysis results showed that the T allele and T(More)

Genetic variations in the human β3-adrenoceptor (β3-AR) gene are known to be involved in insufficient relaxation of the bladder muscle during urine storage. The Trp64Arg polymorphism in the β3-AR gene has been found to be an important regulator of the development of overactive bladder (OAB). However, the association between this polymorphism and OAB remains(More)
