The polymorphisms of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (Pro12Ala) and its coactivator-1 (Gly482Ser) genes were investigated among 201 Chinese Han women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and among 147 regularly cycling women as control subjects. We did not find statistically significant differences with peroxisome(More)
I/D polymorphisms of ACE are associated with the plasma ACE concentration. The ACE is associated with the angiogenesis of ovarian endothelium in vitro as well as steroidogenesis and follicular growth in cattle. Since ACE induces a high blood supply and hypersteroidogenesis in the ovary, it may be associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to ascertain whether single nucleotide polymorphisms of cytidine deaminase (CDA), a key enzyme in the metabolism pathway of gemcitabine, could predict clinical outcomes of cancer patients with gemcitabine-based chemotherapy. METHODS We searched MEDLINE and EMBASE up to January 2013 to identify eligible studies. A(More)
