Genetic variation in DNA repair genes and prostate cancer risk: results from a population-based study

Abstract

DNA repair pathways are crucial to prevent accumulation of DNA damage and maintain genomic stability. Alterations of this pathway have been reported in many cancers. An increase in oxidative DNA damage or decrease in DNA repair capacity with aging or due to germline genetic variation may affect prostate cancer risk. Pooled data from two population-based… (More)
