The association of GSTT1 deletion polymorphism with lung cancer risk among Chinese population: evidence based on a cumulative meta-analysis.

Wang Y, Yang H, Wang H - Onco Targets Ther (2015)

Bottom Line: To obtain a precise conclusion, we performed this meta-analysis to evaluate the association between GSTT1 deletion polymorphism and lung cancer risk among Chinese population.The databases of Medline/PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, Wanfang Med Online, and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure were searched.The strength of the association was assessed by odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI).

ABSTRACT

Objective: Previous studies investigating the relationship between glutathione S-transferase T1 (GSTT1) gene deletion polymorphism and lung cancer risk among Chinese population produced inconsistent results. To obtain a precise conclusion, we performed this meta-analysis to evaluate the association between GSTT1 deletion polymorphism and lung cancer risk among Chinese population.

Methods: The databases of Medline/PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, Wanfang Med Online, and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure were searched. The strength of the association was assessed by odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI).

Results: Overall, we found an increased lung cancer risk among subjects carrying GSTT1 genotype compared with those carrying present genotype (OR =1.31, 95% CI: 1.12-1.52) on the basis of 20 studies with 3,351 cases and 4,683 controls. We also observed an increased risk of lung cancer among subjects carrying GSTT1 genotype compared with those carrying present genotype in stratified analyses (OR =1.31, 95% CI: 1.11-1.55 for healthy subjects-based control; OR =2.29, 95% CI: 1.84-2.85 for squamous cell carcinoma and OR =1.47, 95% CI: 1.22-1.77 for adenocarcinoma, respectively).

Conclusion: This meta-analysis suggested that GSTT1 deletion polymorphism might contribute to lung cancer risk among Chinese population.

Mentions: We performed a sensitivity analysis to determine the influence of individual dataset on the summary OR by consecutively deleting individual studies. The combined OR was not significantly altered by deleting each selected study sequentially, which indicated that our results were stable and robust (Figure 4).
