Bottom Line: Similar effects were indicated in the G versus A allele model and the GG versus GA+AA genetic model (OR, 0.83; 95% CI, 0.74-0.93; P(het)., 0.987; OR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.50-0.79; P(het)., 0.973).The association was also observed in Caucasians and colorectal cancer.No obvious publication bias was detected in this meta-analysis.

ABSTRACT

Background and purpose: Previous studies concerning the role of CD86 polymorphisms (rs1129055 and rs17281995) in cancer fail to provide compelling evidence. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of common polymorphisms in the risk of cancer by meta-analysis.

Methods: By using the search terms Cluster of Differentiation 86/CD86/B7-2/polymorphism/polymorphisms/cancer, we searched PubMed, Embase, CNKI, and Wanfang and identified four studies for rs1129055 (2137 subjects) and rs17281995 (2856 subjects) respectively. Cancer risk was estimated by odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI).

Major findings: Overall, we observed significant reduced risk of cancer in relation to rs1129055. Compared with the individuals with AA genotype, the individuals with GG genotype appeared to have 62% decreased risk to develop cancer (GG versus AA: OR, 0.62; 95% CI, 0.49-0.79; P(het)., 0.996). Similar effects were indicated in the G versus A allele model and the GG versus GA+AA genetic model (OR, 0.83; 95% CI, 0.74-0.93; P(het)., 0.987; OR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.50-0.79; P(het)., 0.973). In addition, we found genotypes of rs17281995 had a major effect on overall cancer risk (CC versus GG: OR, 2.38; 95% CI, 1.43-3.95; P(het)., 0.433; C versus G: OR, 1.23; 95% CI, 1.06-1.43; P(het)., 0.521; CC versus GC+GG: OR, 2.38; 95% CI, 1.45-3.93; P(het)., 0.443). The association was also observed in Caucasians and colorectal cancer. No obvious publication bias was detected in this meta-analysis.

Conclusions: These data reveal that rs1129055 may have protective effects on cancer risk in Asians and that rs17281995 is likely to contribute to risk of cancer, particularly colorectal cancer in Caucasians.

pone-0109131-g002: Funnel plot of publication bias analysis for the associations between CD86 polymorphism and cancer risk.

Mentions: Publication bias was checked by Begg’s funnel plot and Egger’s test. For all genetic models of CD86 polymorphisms, the shape of funnel plots revealed little evidence of obvious asymmetry. Statistically supportive evidence that there was no significant publication bias was further presented in the Egger’s test (Figure 2: funnel plot for rs1129055, PBegg = 0.731, PEgger = 0.331 under GG versus AA;).
