Polymorphisms of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair gene XRCC1 and risk of colon cancer in Saudi patients

  The aim of this study was to investigate the possible association of three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), C194T, G399A, and G280A, in the X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) gene with the risk of developing colon cancer in Saudi patients.

The endoscopic approach to CPA is being used increasingly as the availability of variable angled endoscope allow for operative views of lesions at angles not visible by the microscope and it is minimally invasive.
