To investigate the association of Cyclin D1 (A870G) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) with the susceptibility to esophageal and cardiac cancer in northern Chinese population.


By polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism analysis (PCR-SSCP), the Cyclin D1 (A870G) genotyping was performed among 178 patients with esophageal or esophageal -gastric junction carcinoma (120 with esophageal squamous cell cancer and 58 with cardiac adenoma cancer) and 122 health controls.


There were no significant differences in Cyclin D1 (A870G) allele frequencies between cancer patients and health controls (P = 0.075). There is no genotype distribution difference was found between non-smoker patients and controls (P > 0.05). The risk for esophageal and cardiac cancer is 2.5 times higher in A/A genotype carried smokers than that in A/G or G/G genotype carried non-smokers, with the adjusted Odd Ratio of 2.57 (95% confidence interval is 1.19 approximately 5.57). The G/G genotype reduces the susceptibility to esophageal cancer, with the adjusted Odd Ratio of 0.39 and 95% confidence interval of 0.18 - 0.82. The A/A frequency in cardiac patients (34.48%) is higher than that in health controls (23.77%) but the difference does not reach significant (P = 0.212).


In northern Chinese population, the smoking individuals carrying Cyclin D1 (A870G) A/A genotype increase the susceptibility to esophageal and cardiac cancer. The G/G genotype probably plays a protecting role in the occurrence of esophageal cancer.
