|Title:||Polymorphisms of glutathione S-transferase Mu 1, glutathione S-transferase theta 1 and glutathione S-transferase Pi 1 genes in Hodgkin's lymphoma susceptibility and progression|
|Abstract:||We tested in this study whether the polymorphisms of the glutathione S-transferase Mu1 (GSTM1), glutathione S-transferase Theta 1 (GSTT1) and glutathione S-transferase Pi 1 (GSTP1), involved in metabolism of chemical agents, cell proliferation and cell survival, alter the risk for Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). Genomic DNA from 110 consecutive patients with HL and 226 controls was analysed by polymerase chain reaction and restriction digestion for the polymorphism analyses. Similar frequencies of the GSTM1 and GSTT1 genotypes were seen in patients and controls. In contrast, the frequency of the GSTP1 wild genotype (59.1%versus 36.3%, P=0.004) was higher in patients than in controls. Individuals with the wild genotype had a 2.68 (95%CI: 1.38-5.21)-fold increased risk for the disease than others. An excess of the GSTP1 wild genotype was also observed in patients with tumors of stages III+IV when compared with those with tumors of stages I+II (39.1%versus 20.0%, P=0.03). These results suggest that the wild allele of the GSTP1 gene is linked to an increased risk and high aggressiveness of the HL in our cases but they should be confirmed by further studies with larger cohorts of patients and controls.|
