UNLABELLED Epidemiological evidence suggests that genetic variants encoding enzymes involved in folate metabolism may modulate HNSCC risk by altering DNA methylation synthesis and genomic estability. AIM A review of the literature on genetic polymorphisms involved in folate metabolism and risk of head and neck cancer was carried out. METHODOLOGY An electronic search was made on the Medline database to select papers on head and neck cancer and polymorphisms involved in folate metabolism… CONTINUE READING
