Significant association of alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase gene polymorphisms with susceptibility to prostate cancer: a meta-analysis.


BACKGROUND Alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase(AMACR) is thought to play key roles in diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer. However, studies of associations between AMACR gene polymorphisms and prostate cancer risk reported inconsistent results. Therefore, we conducted the present meta-analysis to clarify the link between AMACR gene polymorphisms and… (More)
