  • BACKGROUND/AIMS Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) is a crucial enzyme involved in the metabolism of Prostaglandins and it has been implicated in several processes. This study was done to investigate the associations of polymorphisms in COX2 gene with the risk of colorectal cancer or polyps development among Jordanian population and to correlate with other ethnicities. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and thirty five cases (135) of colorectal carcinoma were studied for COX2 -A1195G polymorphisms… CONTINUE READING
