Background: To date, EGF 61*A/G, TGF-β1 -509*T/C and TNF-α -308*A/G gene polymorphisms have been not been analysed in pancreatic carcinoma. This study investigated the frequency of these gene polymorphisms among patients with cancer of the pancreatic head. Patients and Methods: A total of 73 pancreatic head cancer patients and 117 cancer-free healthy people were recruited at the Surgical Department of the University Hospital Mannheim. Genomic DNA was isolated from peripheral blood and gene… CONTINUE READING
