A literature search was performed using the HuGE Navigator with the term “bladder cancer” and PubMed searches with the terms “ bladder cancer polymorphisms” and “bladder cancer risk variants” through September, 2008 for the purpose of performing systematic meta-analysis. Publications that did not have controls that were related to outcomes other than bladder cancer risk (e.g. survival), or were performed in special populations (e.g. non-smokers), were excluded. From this search, 32 SNPs reported on in three or more studies were identified, and this chapter summarizes the current evidence for the role of common genetic variation in the etiology of the bladder.

Keywords: genetic variants; genetic variations; human disease; genome-wide studies; bladder cancer; cancer risk
