Cluster of differentiation 1 (CD1) is antigenpresenting molecule involved in the presentation of lipid and glycolipid antigens to specific T cells and natural killer T cells. They exhibit a low rate of polymorphism compared to classical major histocompatibility complex presenting molecules. In this case control study, we examined a possible association of genetic polymorphism in CD1A and CD1D genes with colorectal cancer (CRC) in a Saudi population consisting of 120 patients with CRC and 118
