This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and association of HLA-B*15:02 with carbamazepine-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (CBZ-SJS/TEN) in the Indian population in Malaysia, which mostly originated from Southern India. HLA-B alleles in five Indian case patients with CBZ-SJS/TEN and 52 CBZ-tolerant controls, and(More)
The mechanisms by which p53 prevents development of cancer are much more complicated than previously thought. Under normal conditions, p53 is involved in cell-cycle arrest, Q1apoptosis, DNA repair, and inhibition of angiogenesis; it also promotes degradation of proteins through transcriptional regulation of certain target genes. Here we report the isolation(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a multifactorial and polygenic disease with high incidence in Asian countries. Epstein-Barr virus infection, environmental and genetic factors are believed to be involved in the tumorigenesis of NPC. The association of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in LPLUNC1 and SPLUNC1 genes with NPC was investigated by(More)
Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is a rare hereditary stroke caused by mutations in NOTCH3 gene. We report the first case of CADASIL in an indigenous Rungus (Kadazan-Dusun) family in Kudat, Sabah, Malaysia confirmed by a R54C (c.160C>T, p.Arg54Cys) mutation in the NOTCH3. This mutation was(More)
We evaluated the association of two IL10 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs1800896 and rs1800871) with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) risk in the three major races of the Malaysian population (Malay, Chinese and Indian; 317 cases and 330 controls). Our initial screening demonstrated that rs1800871 but not rs1800896 was significantly associated with(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) arises from the mucosal epithelium of the nasopharynx and is constantly associated with Epstein-Barr virus type 1 (EBV-1) infection. We carried out a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of 575,247 autosomal SNPs in 184 NPC patients and 236 healthy controls of Malaysian Chinese ethnicity. Potential association signals were(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic loci within the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) have been associated with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated cancer, in several GWAS. Results outside this region have varied. METHODS We conducted a meta-analysis of four NPC GWAS among Chinese individuals (2,152 cases; 3,740 controls).(More)
The majority of the carbamazepine-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis CBZ-SJS/TEN are associated with HLA-B*15:02 in Asian populations where this allele is common. In contrast, the association with HLA-A*31:01 is only reported in Japanese and Europeans. This study aimed to further investigate the association with HLA-A*31:01(More)
Large consortia efforts and genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have linked a number of genetic variants within the 6p21 chromosomal region to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Complementing these efforts, we genotyped previously reported SNPs in the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I (rs6457327) and class II (rs9271100, rs2647012 and rs10484561) regions(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous tumor-causing virus which infects more than 90% of the world population asymptomatically. Recent studies suggest that LMP-1, -2A and -2B cooperate in the tumorigenesis of EBV-associated epithelial cancers such as nasopharygeal carcinoma, oral and gastric cancer. In this study, LMPs were expressed in the HEK293T cell(More)
