Research Article


Human oxoguanine glycosylase 1 (OGG1) is an important part of the base excision repair pathway in the DNA repair. Numerous epidemiological studies have evaluated the association between OGG1 rs1052133 polymorphism and the risk of colorectal cancer, but the results of these studies from the Caucasian population were conflicting. To derive a more precise assessment on the association between OGG1 rs1052133 polymorphism and risk of colorectal cancer in Caucasian population, we performed a meta-analysis. The odds ratios (OR) with 95 % confidence intervals (CI) were used to assess the strength of the association. Thirteen case–control studies with a total of 4,103 cases and 5,400 controls were finally included into the meta-analysis. Meta-analysis of all 13 studies showed that OGG1 rs1052133 polymorphism was significantly associated with the risk of colorectal cancer in Caucasian population (Cys versus Ser OR = 1.20, 95 % CI = 1.03–1.39, P = 0.02; CysCys versus SerSer OR = 1.44, 95 % CI = 1.04–2.00, P = 0.03; CysCys versus SerSer/SerCys OR = 1.39, 95 % CI = 1.15–1.67, P = 0.0005). In the sensitivity analysis, omitting each study one at a time had no obvious influence on the pooled OR, which confirmed the stability of meta-analysis. The meta-analysis suggests that OGG1 rs1052133 polymorphism is significantly associated with the risk of colorectal cancer in Caucasian population
