Evaluation of association studies and meta-analyses of MTHFR gene polymorphisms in colorectal cancer


There is a discrepancy between the results of 89 original studies and 15 meta-analyses investigating the association of MTHFR rs1801133 and rs1801131 polymorphisms with colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. We examined this hypothesis through meta-analyses of both loci and their diplotypes as well as evaluation of previous meta-analyses. The present meta-analysis showed that rs1801133 and rs1801131 might be CRC susceptibility variants in Americans and Australians and rs1801133 in Brazilians and Japanese.
