Genetic Variations in XRCC1 Gene in Sporadic Head and Neck Cancer (HNC) Patients

Abstract

DNA repair gene polymorphisms have been implicated as susceptibility factors in cancer development. It is possible that DNA repair polymorphisms may also influence the risk of gene mutation. Polymorphisms in the DNA repair gene XRCC1 have been indicated to have a contributive role in DNA adduct formation and an increased risk of cancer development. 300 head… (More)
