Background: Kras is an important oncogene that plays a pivotal role in carcinogenesis. Rs61764370 polymorphism in Kras 3'-untranslated region is a candidate factor for contributing susceptibility to cancer. However, the results of emerging studies concerning association between rs61764370 and cancer risk remain elusive. Materials and Methods: The association between rs61764370 and risk of cancer was evaluated in 30 studies including 14936. cases and 15168 controls. Results: Meta-analysis result showed that genotype. GT/GG of rs61764370 was not associated with cancer in Caucasian population. After stratifying the overall population into cancer type subgroups, no significant association was observed between genotype. GT/GG and ovarian, breast, colorectal, non.-small cell lung cancer or head-neck carcinoma in Caucasian population, respectively. Conclusion: These results indicated that genotype. GT/GG of rs61764370 was not a genetic susceptible risk factor for cancer, and rs61764370 could not be used as a biomarker for estimating cancer risk in Caucasian population.
