Abstract: This case-control study of 310 colorectal cancer cases and 1177 controls in a nested prospective, population-based cohort of Singapore Chinese subjects found a statistically significant association between the cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 -765G>C gene polymorphism and colon cancer risk among high consumers of dietary n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (odds ratio = 2.38, 95% confidence interval = 1.23-4.59). © 2004 Cancer Research UK.
