The human microsomal epoxide hydrolase (EH) gene contains polymorphic alleles which are associated with altered EH activity and may be linked to increased risk for tobacco-related cancers. The objective was to examine the role of EH polymorphisms in orolaryngeal cancer risk. The prevalence of the EH codons 113 and 139 polymorphisms were examined in 81 African American and 142 Caucasian incident orolaryngeal cancer patients and 335 controls frequency-matched on age, sex, and race. In Caucasians… CONTINUE READING
