Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms have been reported to increase susceptibility to some malignant tumors, yet the effect on gastric cardiac adenocarcinoma susceptibility remains unknown. Here, we conducted a hospital-based case-control study to examine the correlation of single nucleotide polymorphisms of VDR rs2107301T>C, rs2228570C>T, rs1989969C>T and rs11568820 G>A and gastric cardiac adenocarcinoma susceptibility. A total 330 cases and 608 controls were enrolled in the study. Using ligation detection reaction, we found that the variant alleles of the four polymorphisms were not associated with risk of gastric cardiac adenocarcinoma. Further stratified analyses showed that there was an increased risk associated with VDR rs1989969 polymorphism among patients who were drinking or aged <60. The haplotypes VDR Trs2107301Trs2228570Crs1989969Grs11568820 reduced the susceptibility. This study demonstrated that VDR rs1989969 polymorphism was involved in the carcinogenesis of gastric cardiac adenocarcinoma, especially increased the risk in the younger and alcohol drinking Chinese population.
