BACKGROUND AND AIM The results from studies published on the association of fatty acid-binding protein 2 (FABP2) Ala54Thr polymorphism with body mass index (BMI) are conflicting. In this meta-analysis, we investigated the association of the FABP2 Ala54Thr polymorphism with BMI. METHODS AND RESULTS We searched for articles published prior to June 2009 using PubMed, HugeNavigator and China National Knowledge Internet. The languages were limited to English and Chinese. Data on BMI were collected… CONTINUE READING
