Effect of variation of FGF2 genotypes on the risk of osteosarcoma susceptibly: a case control study.

OBJECTIVE Genetic factors play an important role in osteosarcoma (OS) etiology and fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2) gene single polymorphisms may be involved. The aim of this study was to test whether FGF2 variants are associated with susceptibility to OS in a Chinese population. METHODS A total of 151 subjects who were diagnosed as OS and 225 healthy… (More)
