Objective

A novel T-77C polymorphism in the promoter region of the DNA repair gene X-ray cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) may modulate its transcription to increase the risk of lung cancer. Here, we attempt to clarify: (i) whether the XRCC1 T-77C polymorphism was associated with lung cancer risk in Taiwanese and (ii) whether this polymorphism could act as a prognostic indicator to predict the clinical outcome of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients.

Methods

A total of 294 primary lung cancer patients and 288 potential controls were recruited into our study. Clinical data were...
