OBJECTIVES Alaska Native (AN) people have a high prevalence of tobacco use and associated morbidity and mortality when compared with the general USA population. Variations in the CYP2A6 and CYP2B6 genes, encoding enzymes responsible for nicotine metabolic inactivation and procarcinogen activation, have not been characterized in AN and may contribute toward the increased risk. METHODS AN people (n=400) residing in the Bristol Bay region of South Western Alaska were recruited for a cross… CONTINUE READING
