Abstract

The frequency of the delta32 allele detected in the Turkish population was slightly lower in comparison with the previous reports. The frequency of heterozygote genotypes remained an independent risk factor for the development of breast cancer (odd ratio = 1.628; confidence intervals = 0.442-5.992) as well as other cancers examined in this study.
