Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is a vital cytokine involved in inflammation, immunity, and cellular organization. The TNFA-308G/A (rs1800629) and -238G/A (rs361525) polymorphisms are two widely investigated variants for their associations with risk of cervical cancer, but the results are conflicting. Here, we performed a meta-analysis to pool the data and evaluate the between-studies heterogeneity.
