PURPOSE Genetic variation in fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) is a newly described risk factor for breast cancer. This study aimed to evaluate the association of four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in FGFR2 with breast cancer in Han Chinese women. METHODS Two hundred three women with breast cancer and 200 breast cancer-free age-matched(More)
ORMDL sphingolipid biosynthesis regulator 3 (ORMDL3) is a universally confirmed susceptibility gene for asthma and has recently emerged as a crucial modulator in lipid metabolism, inflammation and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-the mechanisms also closely involved in atherosclerosis (AS). Here we first presented the evidence of two single nucleotide(More)
KIF21B polymorphisms were found associated with susceptibility to multiple sclerosis and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in populations of white European ancestry. We aimed to replicate the association of polymorphisms around KIF21B and AS in a Chinese Han population. This case–control study included 665 patients with AS and 1,042 healthy controls genotyped for(More)
Recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) is a common health problem that affects women of reproductive age. Recent studies have indicated that microRNAs are important factors in miscarriage. This study investigated the role of miR-16 in regulating vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and the pathogenesis of RSA. In this report, clinical samples(More)
INTRODUCTION ETS1 is a negative regulator of the Th17 differentiation gene and plays a central role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. We aimed to investigate whether polymorphisms in ETS1 confer susceptibility to ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in Han Chinese. METHODS We selected seven single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within ETS1 based on(More)
