A meta-analysis of CDH1 C-160A genetic polymorphism and gastric cancer risk.


We explored the role of the C-160A single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of CDH1 in susceptibility to gastric cancer through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Fourteen studies were included, the original groups collapsed, and re-grouped in accordance with the most appropriate genetic model. Potential sources of heterogeneity were sought out via subgroup… (More)
