The rare but recurrent germline G84E mutation in HOXB13 was recently found to be associated with a significantly increased risk of familial prostate cancer (PCa). However, epidemiologic findings have been inconsistent. In an attempt to confirm and expand the findings that the PCa risk increased in men carrying G84E, we therefore performed a meta-analysis to… CONTINUE READING
