Association between adiponectin gene T45G polymorphism and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease risk: a meta-analysis
Numerous epidemiological investigations have evaluated the association between adiponectin gene T45G polymorphism and risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, the results of these studies have proven to be inconsistent. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis to obtain a more accurate estimation of this association. Published articles were retrieved from PubMed and Web of Science databases and pooled odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated using fixed- or random-effect models.
APOA5 -1131T/C polymorphism and coronary artery disease susceptibility in Chinese population: an updated meta-analysis
Although many studies have investigated the association of the APOA5 -1131T/C polymorphism with coronary artery disease (CAD), definite conclusions have not been drawn. To understand the effects of the APOA5 -1131T/C polymorphism on the risk of developing CAD, we performed an updated meta-analysis in the Chinese population. Relevant studies published till April 2015 were identified from databases such as PubMed, Springer Link, Ovid, Chinese Wanfang Data Knowledge Service Platform, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, and Chinese Biology Medicine.
CCDC26 rs4295627 polymorphism (8q24.21) and glioma risk: a meta-analysis
The association between the CCDC26 rs4295627 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and the glioma risk has been studied previously, but these studies have yielded conflicting results. The aim of the present study is to analyze this association more vigorously, by means of a meta-analysis. A comprehensive literature search was performed in databases PubMed and EMBASE. Six articles including 12 case-control studies in English with 11,368 controls and 5891 cases were eligible for the meta-analysis.
