Published data on the association between polymorphisms of the X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) gene and skin cancer risk are inconsistent. Hence, we conducted a meta-analysis of three frequently occurring XRCC1 polymorphisms and risk of skin cancer to obtain the most reliable estimate of the association. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were extracted from a total of 10 eligible studies describing 4,801 cases and 4,960 controls for the Arg399Gln (G>A… CONTINUE READING
