Gao J, Xu HL, Gao S, Zhang W, Tan YT, Rothman N, Purdue M, Gao YT, Zheng W, Shu XO, Xiang YB. Genetic polymorphism of NFKB1 and NFKBIA genes and liver cancer risk: a nested case-control study in Shanghai, China. BMJ open. 2014 Feb 27;4(4). e004427. PMID: 24578542 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC3939648
Genetic variations of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) signalling pathway were found to be associated with inflammatory diseases and several malignancies. However, little is known about NF-κB pathway gene polymorphisms and susceptibility of liver cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate whether genetic variants of NFKB1 and NFKBIA were associated with risk of liver cancer in a Chinese population.
