OBJECTIVE The G1057D polymorphism in the insulin receptor substrate-2 (IRS-2) gene has been reported to be associated with insulin resistance, obesity and type 2 diabetes. However little is known about its possible association with cancer. To investigate this association, we determined the distribution of its genotypes and frequency of alleles in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the insulin receptor substrate (IRS)-2 G1057D polymorphism is associated with the risk of endometriosis, and to evaluate potential correlation of IRS2 gene polymorphism with the stages of endometriosis. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING Gynecology clinics in university hospital. PATIENT(S) Women with (n = 135) or(More)
This study evaluated for the first time the relationship between interleukin-18 (IL-18) C607A genotypes and endometriosis in 135 women with endometriosis and 84 controls. In the study population, IL-18 -607∗A homozygote and A allele were positively correlated with the risk of developing endometriosis or the stage of endometriosis.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the role of N-acetyltransferase 2 (NAT2) gene polymorphism in the development of cervical cancer by comparing patients having invasive cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with healthy control subjects. The study group consisted of 42 women with invasive cervical SCC and 50 control subjects. All of the patients were(More)
