Objective: The aim of this study was to determine whether polymorphisms in solute carrier family 2 and facilitated glucose transporter member 9 (SLC2A9) are associated with susceptibility to gout. Methods: A meta-analysis was conducted on associations between the rs12510549, rs16890979, and rs1014290 polymorphisms of SLC2A9 and gout susceptibility using fixed and random effects models. Results: Eleven comparative studies comprising 1,472 patients and 3,269 controls from Caucasian and Asian populations were included in this meta-analysis. The meta-analysis identified a significant negative association between gout and allele 2 (minor) of the rs12510549 polymorphism in the overall population (OR = 0.641, 95 % CI = 0.540–0.761, P = 4.1 × 10−7). Stratification by ethnicity identified a significant negative association between this polymorphism and gout in Caucasians (OR = 0.647, 95 % CI = 0.542–0.771, P = 1.2 × 10−6) but not in Asians (OR = 0.515, 95 % CI = 0.214–1.236, P = 0.137). The meta-analysis showed a significant negative association between gout and allele 2 of the rs16890979 polymorphism in all study subjects (OR = 0.229, 95 % CI = 0.084–0.628, P = 0.004). Stratification by ethnicity identified a significant negative association between this polymorphism and gout in Caucasians (OR = 0.469, 95 % CI = 0.317–0.695, P = 1.6 × 10−6) and in Asians (OR = 0.192, 95 % CI = 0.072–0.513, P = 0.001). A significant negative association was found between allele 2 of the rs1014290 polymorphism and gout susceptibility in Asians (OR = 0.597, 95 % CI = 0.478–0.746, P = 5.4 × 10−6) but not in Caucasians (OR = 0.778, 95 % CI = 0.595–1.043, P = 0.095). Conclusions: This meta-analysis shows that the rs12510549, rs16890979, and rs1014290 polymorphisms of SLC2A9 protect against the development of gout in Caucasians and/or Asians.
