Genetic polymorphisms in ERBB4 are thought to be associated with cancer susceptibility. In the present study, we aimed to assess the impact of ERBB4 rs12052398 T>C, rs13393577 A>G, rs13424871 A>T, rs16847082 A>G and rs6147150 (12-bp I/D) polymorphisms on risk of prostate cancer (PCa) in a sample of Iranian population. In a case-control study, we enrolled 169 patients with pathologically confirmed PCa and 182 subjects with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). No significant association was found… 
Gene Polymormisms and Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review
This article is the first comprehensive overview of genetic investigations of gene polymorphisms on PCa.
Expression of ERBB Family Members as Predictive Markers of Prostate Cancer Progression and Mortality
It is shown that members of the ERBB family are markers that have high prognostic value for predicting biochemical relapse, metastasis development, and even prostate cancer-related mortality.
The role of ErbB4 in cancer
The role of ErbB4 in normal physiology and in breast, lung, colorectal, gastric, pancreatic, prostate, bladder, and brain cancers, as well as in hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and melanoma are discussed.
