Numerous studies have uncovered the association of Interleukin-10 (IL-10) gene rs1800896 polymorphism with the risk of prostate cancer (PCa); however, their conclusions were inconsistent. Therefore, we conducted this meta-analysis to evaluate the role of IL-10 rs1800896 polymorphism in the risk of PCa. 16 eligible studies in 15 articles involving 6,301 cases and 6,510 controls were identified by researching PubMed, Google, CNKI, and EMBASE up to April 1, 2017. Our results revealed that IL-10 rs1800896 polymorphism was associated with the decreased risk of PCa under the homozygous model. Subgroup analysis by ethnicity revealed that rs1800896 polymorphism decreased the risk of PCa among Caucasians. In conclusion, IL-10 gene rs1800896 polymorphism is associated with the decreased risk of PCa. Larger studies with more diverse ethnic populations are needed to confirm these results.
