    Objective. Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is important in the innate immune response. MBL2 gene polymorphisms affect MBL expression, and genotypes yielding low MBL levels have been associated with an elevated risk for infections in hematological cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. However,...

    Esophageal cancer is one of the most aggressive cancers in the world. Recent large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) reported that functional genetic variations in the phospholipase C epsilon gene ( PLCE1) were strongly associated with risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC)...

    Purpose: Neutropenia is a life-threatening side effect of irinotecan, and uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) gene polymorphisms are considered to be one of the predictive markers of irinotecan-related toxicities. Many studies have demonstrated that patients bearing UGT1A1*28...

    The aim of this study was to explore the association between polymorphisms in signal transducer and activator of transcription protein 3 (STAT3) and the risk of gastric cancer. In the present study, a case-control study was conducted in which rs2293152 and rs744166 polymorphisms in STAT3 were...

    Irinotecan is an anti-neoplastic agent that is widely used for treating colorectal and lung cancers, but often causes toxicities such as severe myelosuppression and diarrhea. In this study, we performed a two-stage case–control association study for irinotecan-induced severe...
