The relationship between the nuclear factor erythroid-derived 2-like 2 (NFE2L2) rs35652124 (A/G) polymorphism and the risk of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is controversial. To evaluate the association of the NFE2L2rs35652124 polymorphism with the risk of PD, a meta-analysis was carried out. A total of 2264 PD cases and 2582 controls were included in the meta-analysis on the basis of strict inclusion and exclusion criteria. The pooled odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval were calculated to assess the genetic association between the NFE2L2rs35652124 polymorphism and the risk of PD. There was no significant association between rs35652124 and PD (G vs. A: OR=1.001, P=0.986; GG vs. AA: OR=1.026, P=0.785; GA vs. AA: OR=1.023, P=0.786; GG+GA vs. AA: OR=1.224, P=0.070; GG vs. GA+AA: OR=0.994, P=0.926). The data of our meta-analysis indicate that the G allele, GG, and GA genotype of the rs35652124 (A/G) polymorphism were not associated with the risk of PD.
