Background: Current data regarding association between TNF-α polymorphisms and the risk of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) have shown controversial results. The current study aims to achieve a more accurate estimation of the association between TNF-α-308 and -238 gene polymorphisms and HNSCC susceptibility by a meta-analysis of all eligible studies. Methods: The meta-analysis was performed by reviewing ten studies on the TNF-α-308G/A polymorphism including 1833 HNSCC cases and… CONTINUE READING
