Abstract: Objective To evaluate the association of Pro12Ala polymorphism of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ(PPARγ) gene with type 2 diabetes (T2DM)in Chinese Han population. Methods The present investigation was carried out using the keywords “PPARγ”,“pparg”,“Pro12Ala”,“type 2 diabetes”, and“Chinese. The odds ratios(OR) for Ala12 used as the metric of choice were calculated in the dominant and additive model separately. The Meta-analysis was conducted by softeware STATA 11.0. Results (1) We identified 22 studies, of which 17 studies involving 3927 type 2 diabetes cases and 3364 controls fell into the inclusion criteria. The analysis indicated no significant inter-study heterogeneity and publication bias. (2) The frequencies of the minor allele Ala12 in type 2 diabetes and control groups were 4.8%and 4.6% respectively. (3) The combined overall OR of dominant and additive model calculated by fix-effects meta-analysis for type 2 diabetes and the Pro12Ala polymorphism, were 0.95(95% CI:0.80,1.12) and 0.93(95% CI:0.79,1.09) respectively. Conclusion In this meta-analysis, the Pro12Ala gene variant (rs1801282) is not found to be associated with the susceptibility for type 2 diabetes in Chinese Han population.
