Many previous studies have reported the existence of CTLA-4 polymorphisms in various cancers. However, the effects of CTLA-4 polymorphisms on the risk of gastric cancer (GC) remain conflicting and have not been studied in detail. This meta-analysis was performed to clarify the association between CTLA-4+49A/G, -1661A/G and -1722T/C polymorphisms and GC risk… CONTINUE READING
