Associations between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in inflammation-related genes and quality of life after radiation therapy (RT) for prostate cancer.

Abstract

2 Background: Prostate-directed RT results in local inflammation that may contribute to short-term toxicity and subsequently effects on long-term quality of life (QOL). We sought to explore the hypothesis that SNPs in inflammation-related genes may influence QOL sequelae following definitive prostate cancer RT. METHODS We studied Caucasian participants in… (More)
