Several previous studies have investigated whether the -160C/A epithelial cadherin promoter polymorphism confers an increased risk of diffuse gastric cancer (DGC), but conflicting results have been reported. To explore further the association of this polymorphism with DGC susceptibility, we performed an extensive search of relevant studies and conducted a meta-analysis to obtain a more precise estimate. We conducted a systematic literature search using the databases EMBASE, PubMed, and Web of… CONTINUE READING
