AIMS Iran is located in the Asian esophageal cancer belt. It is a high-risk region for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). The extent to which genetic components, especially variants within miRNAs or their binding sites, contribute to risk of ESCC in the region is not yet fully understood. Herein, tests were done on an Iranian cohort to evaluate the(More)
BACKGROUND Esophageal, stomach, and colorectal cancers are commonly lethal gastrointestinal tract (GIT) neoplasms, causing almost two million deaths worldwide each year. some environmental risk factors are acknowledged; however, genetic defects can significantly contribute to predisposition to GIT cancers. Accordingly, recent works have shown that(More)
Breast cancer is one of the most common diseases among women in the world with an incidence of more than 1000000 and death rate of 410000 in 2012 (Zhang et al., 2013). In Iran, it is also the most common cancer among women (Rahimzadeh et al., 2014). A number factors such as menopausal states and genetic variants can extend the risk of malignancy (Rai,(More)
In recent years, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have made great progress in elucidating the genetic influence on complex traits. An overwhelming number of GWAS signals resides in regulatory elements, therefore most post-GWAS studies focused only on transcriptional regulatory variants. However, recent findings have expanded the spectrum of(More)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the world. In Iran, the incidence of breast cancer is on the increase. We here studied the association of rs1219648 in FGFR2 and rs1042522 in TP53 and their interaction in development of early onset sporadic breast cancer in Iranian Azeri population to evaluate epistatic effects on the risk of mammary(More)
