The association between vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms and risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has been investigated in numerous publications, but published results remain inconclusive. Hence, we conducted this meta-analysis to derive a more precise conclusion. Four polymorphisms (Taq-I, Bsm-I, Apa-I, and Fok-I) of the VDR gene with risk(More)
There are inconsistent data on the association of risk of hepatitis virus infection and hepatitis virus-related diseases with the toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) gene.Several common polymorphism sites were targeted to assess the risk of HBV infection, HCV infection, and HBV-related diseases.Meta-analysis combining data for 3547 cases and 2797 controls from 8(More)
PURPOSE Numerous studies have suggested that the interleukin-4 (IL-4) rs2243250 polymorphism is associated with gastric cancer susceptibility. However, the results were inconsistent. Hence, we carried out a meta-analysis to confirm the conclusion. METHODS We searched PubMed, Embase, CBM, CNKI, and Wanfang Data to identify relevant studies up to August 20,(More)
Although the association between CAG and GGN repeats in the androgen receptor gene and prostate cancer risk has been widely studied, it remains controversial from previous meta-analyses and narrative reviews. Therefore, we performed this meta-analysis to provide more precise estimates with sufficient power. A total of 51 publications with 61 studies for CAG(More)
