Aims: Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BONJ) is a severe complication in patients on bisphosphonate therapy. The study was conducted to verify the association between CYP2C8 (rs1934951) polymorphism and BONJ predisposition. Methods: The relative epidemiologic studies were identified in PubMed and Embase to conduct a meta-analysis using STATA. Results: In the pooled analysis with multiple cancer types, patients carrying the CYP2C8 rs1934951 AA or AG genotype showed no significantly increased BONJ susceptibility compared with those carrying the wild GG genotype [dominant: odds ratio (OR) = 2.05, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.67–6.29, p = 0.209; recessive: OR = 1.88, 95% CI = 0.23–15.6, p = 0.560; AG vs. GG: OR = 2.07, 95% CI = 0.80–5.32, p = 0.133, and AA vs. GG: OR = 1.34, 95% CI = 0.48–3.74, p = 0.578]. A significant association between AA and AG genotypes of CYP2C8 (rs1934951) and BONJ risk was found in the subgroup analysis of multiple myeloma (dominant: OR = 5.77, 95% CI = 1.21–27.63, p = 0.028; AG vs. GG: OR = 5.02, 95% CI = 2.06–12.23, p = 0.001, and AA vs. GG: OR = 16.23, 95% CI = 1.72–78.7, p = 0.015). Conclusion: The results indicated that AA and AG genotypes of CYP2C8 (rs1934951) might be predictors for multiple myeloma patients at high risk to develop BONJ.
