Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the deadliest cancers which lie in the incidence of morbidity in second place. Intensive research is to determine and confirm the genetic basis of this disease, which is believed may have a direct relationship with the reduced efficiency of DNA repair systems. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of APEX gene polymorphism Ile64Val on increasing the risk of colorectal cancer in the Polish population. Material and methods. The blood samples collected from 150 patients diagnosed with colon cancer was used. The control group consisted of 150 healthy subjects. Genotyping was performed by TaqMan method. Results. The results indicate that genotype Ile Val is associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer (OR 2.069; 95% CI 1,205-3,552; p = 0.008). Conclusions. Based on these results, we conclude that the APEX gene polymorphism Ile64Val may be associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer.
