Our aim was to investigate the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and coronary heart disease (CHD) susceptibility in Chinese Han population.144 CHD patients and 150 healthy individuals were enrolled in the study. Three SNPs (936C/T, -460T/C and -634G/C) of VEGF were chose and then were genotyped with Sequenom time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS). Odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) were used to evaluate the association of genotypes and haplotypes and CHD susceptibility.The frequencies of -460T/C CC genotype (13.6%) was found higher in the case group than that of control group (6.7%), which indicated that CC genotype was a risk factor for CHD (OR=2.50, 95% CI=1.10-5.68). Correspondently, the C allele appeared to increase the risk of CHD (OR=1.54, 95% CI=1.07-2.22). For -634G/C polymorphism, the risk of the CC genotype carrier for CHD increased 2.24 fold compared to the wild genotype. Moreover, -634G/CC allele was significantly associated with CHD susceptibility (OR=1.65, 95% CI=1.15-2.36). In addition, +936C/T CT genotype and C allele appeared to be a genetic-susceptibility factors for CHD (OR=2.43, 95% CI=1.44-4.10; OR=1.95, 95% CI=1.26-3.02). The haplotype analysis showed that T-C-T, C-C-C and C-G-C haplotypes all could increase the risk for CHD (OR: 2.43, 2.77 and 2.33).we concluded VEGF polymorphisms were associated with CHD susceptibility. Moreover, the haplotypes of T-C-T, C-C-C and C-G-C all could increase the risk for CHD.

The study aimed to investigate the role of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) rs6965469 and rs763317 polymorphisms in the occurrence and development of lung cancer.We used polymerase chain reaction-ligation detection reaction (PCR-LDR) method to detect the genotypes of EGFR rs6965469 and rs763317 polymorphisms and the data were analyzed by GeneMapper software. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) was calculated by (2) test to estimate the significance difference of genotype and allele frequencies in case and control groups. ORs and 95% CIs were adjusted by logistic regression analysis with age, gender, drinking and smoking. The genotypes distributions of control group were tested by Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE).The genotypes frequencies of controls for rs6965469 and rs763317 polymorphims were consistent with HWE. The distribution of rs6965469 TT genotype in two groups was significantly different (P<0.05) and TT genotype was associated with an increased risk of lung cancer (OR=6.92, 95% CI=1.33-36.00). AA genotype and A allele of rs763317 were also the susceptible factors of lung cancer. Individuals with AA genotype or A allele were more likely to suffer lung cancer (AA vs. GG: OR=7.20, 95% CI=1.33-39.07; A vs. G: OR=2.61, 95% CI=1.04-6.59).The EGFR rs6965469 and rs763317 polymorphisms may be risk factors for lung cancer.
