The xeroderma pigmentosum group G (XPG or ERCC5) and group F (XPF or ERCC4) play an important role in DNA repair, and produce dual incision 3′ and 5′ to the damaged nucleotide fragment. Several polymorphisms in the XPF and XPG gene have been described, including the commonly occurring Asp1104His in XPG and Arg415Gln in XPF. The published data on the(More)
p53 is a tumor suppressor gene and plays an important role in the etiology of breast cancer. However, studies on the association between p53 polymorphisms and breast cancer risk have yielded conflicting results. We performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between breast cancer and the p53 polymorphisms codon 72 (27,046 cases and 30,998(More)
Genetic variations in the xeroderma pigmentosum group D (XPD) gene may increase cancer susceptibility by affecting the capacity for DNA repair. A lot of studies have reported the association of XPD Lys751Gln polymorphism with risk of cancer, but the results remained controversial. Hence, we performed a systematic review and conducted a meta-analysis to(More)
T3801C is a common polymorphism in CYP1A1, showing differences in its biological functions. Case-control studies have been performed to elucidate the role of T3801C in cancer, although the results are conflicting and heterogeneous. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between cancer susceptibility and T3801C (55,963 cases and(More)
The Arg194Trp polymorphism in the X-ray cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) had been implicated in cancer susceptibility. The previous published data on the association between XRCC1 Arg194Trp polymorphism and cancer risk remained controversial. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between cancer susceptibility and XRCC1(More)
The BRCA1-associated RING domain (BARD1) gene has been identified as a high-penetrance gene for breast cancer, whose germline and somatic mutations were reported in both non-BRCA1/2 hereditary site-specific and sporadic breast cancer cases. Some association studies suggested that the BRAD1 Cys557Ser variant might be associated with increased risk of breast(More)
AIM To evaluate transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) with covered stents for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with main portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT). METHODS Eleven advanced HCC patients (all male, aged 37-78 years, mean: 54.3 ± 12.7 years) presented with acute massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding (n = 9) or refractory ascites (n =(More)
Many studies have reported the role of COMT Val158Met with breast cancer risk, but the results remained controversial. In addition, previous meta-analysis on COMT Val158Met showed conflicting results. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between breast cancer and COMT Val158Met (30,199 cases and 38,922 controls) in different(More)
The previous published data on the association between X-ray repair cross-complementing group 3 (XRCC3) T241M, A4541G, and A17893G polymorphisms and breast cancer risk remained controversial. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between breast cancer and XRCC3 T241M (21,910 cases and 23,961 controls), A4541G (9,633 cases and(More)
A2455G is a common polymorphism in CYP1A1, showing differences in its biological functions. Case–control studies have been performed to elucidate the role of A2455G in cancer; however, the results are conflicting and heterogeneous. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between cancer susceptibility and A2455G (64,593 cases and(More)
