Functional single nucleotide polymorphism in C20orf54 modifies susceptibility to esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
Diseases of the Esophagus, 05/15/2012Wei W et al.
A positive family history of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with C/T and T/T genotype both increased the risk of developing ESCC. Body mass index between 18.5 and 24 with C/T genotype significantly decreased the risk of developing ESCC. The present study suggests that the C20orf54 functional SNP might be associated with a risk of development in ESCC.
