Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and is associated with a poor survival rate in the Chinese Han population. Analysis of genetic variants could lead to improvements in prognosis following lung cancer treatment. Resistin (RETN) is an important mediator of metabolic diseases and tumor progression. In this study, we explored the effects of RETN single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on the susceptibility and clinicopathological characteristics of patients with lung cancer. Four RETN… CONTINUE READING
