Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men worldwide and is the second leading cause of cancer related mortality. Genetic background may account for the difference in susceptibility of individuals to different diseases and the relationship between genetic polymorphism and some diseases has been extensively studied. There are several common(More)
Prostate cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer in men next to skin cancer in the developed world. Risk of disease varies most prominently with age, ethnicity, family history, and diet. Genetic polymorphism of some genes has been implicated in increasing the risk. The XPD (Xeroderma pigmentosum group D) gene codes for a DNA helicase involved in(More)
Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common noncutaneous cancer among men, accounting for 10 % of male cancer-related deaths worldwide. The etiology of PCa is largely unknown, although multiple environmental and lifestyle factors such as ultraviolet irradiation, smoking, and diet might increase the risk of the disease. Risk of disease varies most prominently(More)
HIV/AIDS remains to be one of the killing diseases of mankind. Host genetic response is one of the factor which determine susceptibility to HIV and disease progression to AIDS. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of ERCC2 Lyc ( 751 ) Gln (excision repair cross complementing rodent repair deficiency, complementation group 2) polymorphism(More)
Despite different efforts made to intervene with the deadly nature of HIV/AIDS, all attempts remained unsuccessful due to complexity of the viral host interactions. The solution to HIV-1 pandemic is still to come, thus to assist the efforts being made to intervene with the deadly nature of the virus, different factors responsible for the disease burdens(More)
