X-ray repair cross complementing 1 (XRCC1) protein plays an important role in base excision repair. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in XRCC1 gene may affect DNA repairing ability and genetic susceptibility to cancer. This study was designed to investigate the correlation of XRCC1 Arg194Trp Arg280His and Arg399Gln SNPs with the risk of gastric cardiac(More)
p16 is an important tumor suppressor gene, which is inactivated in many kinds of tumors. The common variants of p16 may be associated with the risk of certain tumors development. We analyzed the frequency of two adjacent polymorphisms in p16 exon 3 (540C-->G and 580C-->T) and their haplotype in blood samples from epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients and(More)
INTRODUCTION Testing for high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV) has been consistently more sensitive than cervical cytology for high-grade precancers and cancers of the cervix (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or higher) but less specific. New assays are being developed to improve on the overall accuracy of molecular testing. The Gen-Probe(More)
