Lung cancer represents a complex and malignant cancer. Close Homologue of L1 (CHL1) gene plays a crucial role in the progress of cancer. The aim of this study is to explore the association between CHL1 rs425366 polymorphism and lung cancer susceptibility in northeast of China. A hospital-based case-control study was carried out to collect relative characteristics. Logistic regression analysis was conducted to analyze the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms and lung cancer susceptibility. The results suggested that there was statistically significant difference between GT genotype and TT genotype of rs425366 and lung cancer susceptibility. In stratified analysis, TT genotype of rs425366 may increase the risk of lung adenocarcinoma. We also found that non-smoking individuals carrying T allele were more likely to develop lung cancer. Overall, our study may indicate that CHL1 gene may increase lung cancer susceptibility in northeast of China.
