Previous studies on the association between interleukin-1 (IL-1) genetic polymorphisms and the risk of gastric cancer have produced conflicting results. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between IL-1 genotype and gastric cancer by systematically reviewing the risk of the original studies. Thirty-nine studies, which included 6,863(More)
Two non-synonymous polymorphisms Arg194Trp and Arg399Gln in the DNA-base excision repair gene X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) have been implicated in risk for esophageal cancer. However, the results from different studies remain controversial. The present meta-analysis of literatures was performed to clarify these associations in Chinese(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that sera from patients with prostate cancer (PCa) contain autoantibodies that react with tumor-associated antigens (TAAs). Autoantibodies to cyclin B1 and fourteen other TAAs were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blotting in 464 sera from patients with PCa, benign prostatic hyperplasia(More)
Esophageal cancer (EC) is the sixth leading cause of cancer-associated death worldwide and the incidence and mortality in China are the highest. The single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) related to microRNAs could lead to alteration in microRNA expression and contribute to the susceptibility of cancer. To evaluate the association between microRNA-related(More)
A genetic epidemiologic analysis of gastric cancer in the Chinese Han population was conducted for 64 pedigrees (902 individuals) with gastric cancer and controls obtained from the population after a census was carried out in August 2007. The heritability of gastric cancer was performed using the Falconer method and the complex segregation analysis was(More)
Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the world. Although certain dietary factors and lifestyles have been suggested to be associated with gastric carcinogenesis, there have been few investigations focusing on rural areas. A case-control study was therefore carried out to investigate the risk factors of gastric cardia(More)
Sera from patients with cancer contain antibodies which react with a unique group of autologous cellular antigens called tumor-associated antigens (TAAs). This study aimed to determine whether a mini-array of multiple TAAs would enhance antibody detection and be a useful approach in breast cancer detection and diagnosis. The mini-array of multiple TAAs was(More)
The aim of this study is to provide a precise quantification for the association between miR-149 T > C (rs2292832) and miR-27a A > G (rs895819) and the risk of cancer. We conducted a systematic literature review and evaluated the quality of included studies based on Newcastle-Ottawa Scale (NOS). Pooled odds ratios (ORs) and corresponding 95% confidence(More)
X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 gene (XRCC1) has been implicated in risk for lung cancer. However, the results from different studies remain controversial. In this meta-analysis, we have assessed 44 published case–control studies regarding associations of lung cancer risk with three common polymorphisms, codon 194, codon 280 and codon 399, and −77(More)
A novel functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2274223 located in the phospholipase C epsilon 1 (PLCE1) gene was found to be associated with the risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) by three large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in Chinese populations. In the present study, we validated this finding and also explored the(More)
