Background: Bladder cancer is an important health problem which ranks 4th among most frequently seen cancer types in men. In our study we aimed to investigate the correlations among urothelial type bladder cancer polymorphisms, ApaI, BsmI, Fold, and Taal, prevalently observed in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene and plasma vitamin D levels in a Turkish population.
