The glutathione-S-transferase (GST) genes are involved in the detoxification of various carcinogens that increase the risk to upper aerodigestive tract (UADT) cancers. In the present study, 408 unrelated histopathologically confirmed cases and 220 population based controls, matched by age and gender, which belonged to the Tamilian population of south India(More)
CYP2E1 and GSTP1 enzymes belong to phase I and phase II group of drug metabolizing enzymes respectively which are involved in the metabolic activation and detoxification of various potential genotoxic compounds. The functional polymorphism in these genes exhibit inter-individual variations in susceptibility towards various diseases and difference in(More)
BACKGROUND Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) is involved in a key pathway of reverse cholesterol transport implicated in atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. CETP gene is known to have many single nucleotide polymorphisms which have been associated with CETP activity and plasma high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) concentrations. No(More)
INTRODUCTION The CYP2E1 enzyme is responsible for the metabolic activation of several procarcinogens into reactive metabolites that result in carcinogenesis. The genetic polymorphisms that modify these enzymatic activities may be associated with upper aerodigestive tract cancer risk. METHODS This hospital-based study evaluated CYP2E1*1B, CYP2E1*5B and(More)
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of genetic polymorphism in the CYP2D6 gene, which codes for the polymorphically expressed CYP2D6 drug-metabolizing enzyme. The common variants CYP2D6 *2, *3, *4, *5, *10, *14, and *17 were studied in the populations (n=447) of the four South Indian states namely Tamilnadu (TN), Kerala (Ker), Karnataka (Kar) and(More)
