The aim of this meta-analysis was to assess the association between a polymorphism (-3860 G > A) in the cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2) gene and lung cancer susceptibility. Relevant studies were retrieved from the PubMed and EMBase databases, and additionally evaluated for conformance with the inclusion criteria. The odds ratios (ORs) and their 95% confidence intervals (95%CIs) in all selected studies were used to assess the relationship between the CYP1A2 -3860 G > A polymorphism and lung cancer risk. The data was pooled using Stata v.11.
To date, no study has investigated the association between CYP1A2-163C/A polymorphism and bladder cancer risk in a Chinese population. Here, we extracted genomic DNA from peripheral white blood cells, and differentiated CYP1A2 alleles by polymerase chain reaction-based restriction fragment length polymorphism methods. Differences in genotype frequencies between the cases and controls were evaluated using a chi-square test. The odds ratio (OR) and its 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated using an unconditional logistic regression model.
