Lung cancer is the most common cancer occurring worldwide. The human X-ray repair complementing group 1 (XRCC1) gene is one of the most important candidate genes that influence the susceptibility to lung cancer. The objective of this study was to analyze the potential association between the c.1804C>A genetic variant of XRCC1 and lung cancer susceptibility. A total of 703 subjects were recruited for this study. Genotyping of c.1804C>A genetic variant was performed using the created restriction site-polymerase chain reaction.
We conducted a case-control study to assess the role of the XRCC1 Arg399Gln, Arg280His, and Arg194Trp gene polymorphisms in pancreatic cancer susceptibility in a Chinese population. A total of 152 patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 264 control subjects were enrolled in this study between March 2012 and October 2014. XRCC1 Arg399Gln, Arg280His, and Arg194Trp were genotyped using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method.
We aimed to investigate the role of XRCC1 codon 194 (Arg>Trp), 280 (Arg>His), and 399 (Arg>Gln) polymorphisms in response to chemotherapy and the overall survival of gastric cancer patients. A total of 172 patients were recruited for our study between January 2010 and March 2012. Genotyping of the three XRCC1 codons was carried out by restriction fragment length polymorphism polymerase chain reaction.
Numerous studies have evaluated the association between Arg399Gln polymorphism of DNA repair gene XRCC1 and cervical carcinoma risk. However, the specific association is still controversial. To assess the relationship between XRCC1 Arg399Gln polymorphism and cervical carcinoma, we conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis of 10 case-control studies with 2051 cervical carcinoma cases and 2919 controls.
We investigated the association between the polymorphisms GSTP1 rs1695 and XRCC1 rs1799782 and rs25487 and the clinical outcome of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) receiving cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Genotyping of GSTP1 rs1695 and XRCC1 rs1799782, and rs25487 was conducted by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis.
