Associations between arachidonic acid metabolism gene polymorphisms and prostate cancer risk.

BACKGROUND The arachidonic acid (AA) pathway is suspected to be involved in the development of various cancers, including prostate cancer. However, the role of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of AA pathway genes remains unclear. The purpose of this case-control study was to evaluate the association between prostate cancer risk and 14 such SNPs in the… CONTINUE READING
