Abstract

TERT-CLPTM1L genomic region has been extensively associated with several types of cancer. However, results were inconsistent. We performed this meta-analysis to estimate the association between TERT (rs2736100, rs2736098), as well as CLPTM1L (rs402710, rs401681) polymorphisms and cancer risk.
