OBJECTIVE To study the association between gene polymorphisms of cytochrome P450 1B1 (CYP1B1) in exon 2 codon 119 (G-T) and exon 3 codon 432 (C-G) and the susceptibility to endometriosis. METHODS Allele-specific polymerase chain reaction was used to analyze the gene polymorphisms in 55 cases of endometriosis and 45 cases of normal controls. RESULTS The frequencies of alleles G and T in codon 119 G/T of CYP1B1 gene showed a significant difference between the endometriosis group and the… CONTINUE READING
