[Association between genetic polymorphism of metabolizing enzymes and DNA repairing enzymes and the susceptibility of lung cancer in Henan population].
We read with great interest the paper titled “X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 codon 399 polymorphism and lung cancer risk: an updated meta-analysis” published by Wang et al in Tumor Biology, 2014, 35:411–418. Their results suggest that codon 399 polymorphism of XRCC1 gene might contribute to individual’s susceptibility to lung cancer in Asian population and especially in nonsmoking Chinese women. The result is encouraging. Nevertheless, several key issues are worth noticing.
