BACKGROUND TERT-CLPTM1L genomic region has been extensively associated with several types of cancer. However, results were inconsistent. We performed this meta-analysis to estimate the association between TERT (rs2736100, rs2736098), as well as CLPTM1L (rs402710, rs401681) polymorphisms and cancer risk. METHODS Electronic search in PubMed, EMBASE and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) was conducted to select the studies. Studies containing available genotype frequencies of those 4… Expand
