Abstract

Previous published studies suggested that genetic polymorphisms in DNA repair genes could modify the DNA repair capacity and could be associated with pancreatic cancer risk. However, previous studies on the association between X-ray repair cross-complementation group 1 (XRCC1) rs25487 (Arg399Gln) polymorphism and pancreatic cancer risk reported inconsistent results. To obtain a more precise estimation of the association between XRCC1 rs25487 polymorphism and pancreatic cancer risk, we performed a meta-analysis of previous published studies by calculating the pooled odds ratio (OR) with a 95% confidence interval (95% CI). Eight individual studies with 5,542 subjects from six publications were finally included into this meta-analysis. The meta-analysis of total eight studies showed that there was no association between XRCC1 rs25487 polymorphism and pancreatic cancer risk in total population under all four genetic models (Gln versus Arg: OR = 1.10, 95% CI 0.95-1.28, P = 0.199; GlnGln versus ArgArg: OR = 1.15, 95% CI 0.93-1.41, P = 0.191; GlnGln/ArgGln versus ArgArg: OR = 1.10, 95% CI 0.97-1.25, P = 0.127; GlnGln versus ArgArg/ArgGln: OR = 1.12, 95% CI 0.92-1.36, P = 0.253). Subgroup analysis showed that there was no association between XRCC1 rs25487 polymorphism and pancreatic cancer risk in Caucasians, but XRCC1 rs25487 polymorphism was associated with pancreatic cancer risk in Asians (GlnGln/ArgGln versus ArgArg: OR = 1.24, 95% CI 1.01-1.53, P = 0.040). Therefore, the meta-analysis suggests that XRCC1 rs25487 polymorphism is associated with pancreatic cancer risk in Asians. Further studies with more participants are needed to provide a more precise estimation on the association above.
