Deletion polymorphism of the GSTM1 gene in lung cancer patients from the Lake District in Turkey.

Abstract

20089 Background: Association of glutathione-S-transferase M1 (GSTM1) polymorphisms and cancer has been demonstrated. Especially the deletion polymorphism of GSTM1 has been related to risk for lung cancer in some studies. We thus investigated the frequency of GSTM1-null genotype in lung cancer patients and healthy individuals from the Lake District in… (More)
