APE1 (apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1) is an important DNA repair protein in the base excision repair pathway. Polymorphisms in APE1 have been implicated in susceptibility to cancer; however, results from the published studies remained inconclusive. The objective of this study was to conduct a meta-analysis investigating the association between polymorphisms in APE1 and the risk for cancer. The PubMed and Embase databases were searched for case-control studies published up to June, 2011… CONTINUE READING
