ABSTRACT The aim of our study was to determine the effect of monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1), CC chemokine receptor 2 (CCR2), and CC chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) gene polymorphisms on the susceptibility and clinicopathological characteristics of prostate cancer. Genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) method in 156 histopathologically confirmed prostate cancer patients and 152 healthy subjects. Individuals with AA genotype or at least one A allele of CCR2 V64I gene polymorphism had a higher risk for prostate cancer as compared with those with GG genotype (p=0.010 and p=0.028, respectively). CCR5 Δ32/wt genotype and CCR5 Δ32 allele were also found to be involved in the susceptibility to prostate cancer (p=0.028 and p=0.030, respectively). However, there was no significant association between MCP-1-2518 A/G gene polymorphism and prostate cancer risk. Prostate cancer patients carrying AA genotype or at least one A allele of CCR2 V64I had significantly increased risk for high stage disease (p=0.002 and p=0.039, respectively) and metastasis (p=0.004 and p=0.022, respectively). The CCR2 A allele (64I allele) was significantly associated with high T stage (p=0.001) and metastasis (p=0.005) as compared with CCR2 G allele (64V allele). Our data indicate that gene polymorphism of CCR2 V64I may influence the susceptibility and clinicopathological characteristics of prostate cancer and CCR5 Δ32 allele may also be an important risk factor for prostate cancer in Turkish men population.

    ABSTRACT: Associations between CCL5-403, CCR5-59029, and Delta32 polymorphisms and cancer risk are inconclusive. To derive a more precise estimation of the association, we performed a meta-analysis by searching PubMed, EMBASE, Google scholar, and WanFang databases. A total of 20 eligible articles with 39 studies were included. Of those studies, there were 21 studies for CCR5-Delta32 polymorphism, 9 studies for CCR5-59029 polymorphism, and 9 studies for CCL5-403 polymorphism. Combined analysis revealed no associations between these polymorphisms and cancer risk. However, subgroup analysis by ethnicity suggested that CCR5-59029 polymorphism was associated with the risk of cancer among Asian populations (A vs. G: odds ratio (OR) = 1.36, 95 % confidence interval (CI) 1.13-1.65, P H = 0.27; AA vs. GG: OR = 2.07, 95 % CI 1.37-3.12, P H = 0.17; GA+AA vs. GG: OR = 1.35, 95 % CI 1.03-1.77, P H = 0.92; AA vs. GA+GG: OR = 1.98, 95 % CI 1.01-3.88, P H = 0.08), but not among Caucasian populations. CCL5-403 polymorphism was associated with the risk of cancer among African populations (A vs. G: OR = 0.68, 95 % CI 0.55-0.83, P H = 0.14; AA vs. GG: OR = 0.51, 95 % CI 0.33-0.77, P H = 0.52; AG vs. GG: OR = 0.58, 95 % CI 0.42-0.80, P H = 0.14; AG+AA vs. GG: OR = 0.56, 95 % CI 0.41-0.75, P H = 0.13), but not among Caucasian populations and Asian populations. Overall, this meta-analysis indicated that CCR5-Delta32 was not associated with the risk of cancer. CCR5-59029 polymorphism contributed to cancer risk among Asian populations, and CCL5-403 polymorphism was associated with the decreased risk of cancer among African populations.

    ABSTRACT: Background: The 2518 A/G polymorphism in the MCP-1 gene has been extensively studied for association swith cancer; however, results from replication studies have been inconsistent. The aim of this investigation was to determine links with risk of cancer by meta-analysis. Methods: We searched Pubmed, Embase, CNKI, Weipu and Wanfang databases, covering all case-control studies until March, 2013. Statistical analyses were performed using the Revman 5.0 software. Results: A total of 11 case-control studies met our inclusion criteria, including 1,422 cases and 2,237 controls. The results indicated that the MCP-1 2518 gene polymorphism had no association with cancer risk overall (GG vs.GA+ AA: OR = 0.89, 95%CI = 0.61-1.28, P = 0.52). However, in the subgroup analysis by ethnicity, a decrease of cancer risk was found in Asian populations (GG vs.GA+ AA: OR = 0.79, 95%CI = 0.63-0.99, P = 0.04). Conclusion: This meta-analysis suggested that the 2518A/G polymorphism of MCP-1 gene is associated with risk of cancer among Asian, but not in Caucasian populations.

    ABSTRACT: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) may affect the development of diseases. The -2518A/G polymorphism in the regulatory region of the monocyte chemo-attractant protein-1 (MCP-1) gene has been reported to be associated with cancer risk. However, the results of previous studies were inconsistent. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to obtain a more precise estimation of the relationship between the -2518A/G polymorphism and cancer risk. We performed a meta-analysis, including 4,162 cases and 5,173 controls, to evaluate the strength of the association between the -2518A/G polymorphism and cancer risk. Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were used to assess the strength of association. Overall, the results indicated that the -2518A/G polymorphism was not statistically associated with cancer risk. However, sub-group analysis revealed that individuals with GG genotypes showed an increased risk of cancer in digestive system compared with carriers of the A allele (GG vs. AA: OR = 1.43, 95%CI = 1.05-1.96, Pheterogeneity = 0.08; GG vs. OR = 1.29, 95%CI = 1.02-1.64, Pheterogeneity = 0.14). In addition, the increased risk of GG genotype was also observed in Caucasians (GG vs. OR = 1.81, 95%CI = 1.10-2.96, Pheterogeneity = 0.02). This meta-analysis suggests that the MCP-1 -2518A/G polymorphism may have some relation to digestive system cancer susceptibility or cancer development in Caucasian. Large-scale and well-designed case-control studies are needed to validate the findings.
