Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (Nampt) was served as a useful biomarker for tumorigenesis and for the prediction of cancer survival. In the present study, we analyzed the SNPs of the NAMPT gene and their impact on the susceptibility and prognosis for patients with bladder cancer (BC). The rs61330082, rs2505568 and rs9034 were selected and genotyped by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) method in 407 patients with bladder cancer and 316… CONTINUE READING
