Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

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

METHODS:

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.

RESULTS:

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).

CONCLUSION:

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.
