Recent genome-wide associated studies (GWASs) have revealed several common loci associated with the risk of hepatitis B virus (HBV)- or hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We selected 15 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified through GWASs on HBV- or HCV-related HCC, and genotyped them in two independent Chinese(More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of microRNAs (miRNAs) are considered potential markers of cancer risk and prognosis in various cancers. In the current study, the primary aim is to determine whether the miR-492G>C polymorphism (rs2289030) altered hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) prognosis. The SNP rs2289030 of miR-492 was genotyped using DNA from blood(More)
BACKGROUND Several potential risk factors have been identified for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL); however, epidemiological studies investigating the association between these risk factors and DLBCL have yielded inconsistent results. OBJECTIVES To investigate potential medical, lifestyle, and environmental risk factors of DLBCL in Shanghai, China(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within microRNAs (miRNAs) are considered potential markers for risk and prognosis of various cancers. In the current study, we aimed to determine whether miR-608 rs4919510 affected hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) prognosis. We genotyped rs4919510 using DNA from blood samples of 362 HCC patients receiving surgical(More)
