Abstract: Neuroblastoma is a common pediatric extra-cranial tumor of the sympathetic nervous system. XRCC1 is a scaffold protein that participates in DNA single-strand break repair by complexing with other proteins. XRCC1 gene polymorphisms are being increasingly explored in cancer epidemiology studies. However, the contribution of XRCC1 gene polymorphisms to neuroblastoma risk remains unclarified. Herein, we conducted a case-control study with 393 neuroblastoma patients and 812 controls to explore the association of XR…
