Genetic polymorphisms of smoking-related carcinogen detoxifying enzymes and head and neck cancer susceptibility.


Smoking and the consumption of alcohol are the main risk factors for head and neck cancer. However, interindividual variation in the activity of enzymes involved in the detoxification of tobacco smoke (pro)carcinogens, such as microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEH), glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) and uridine 5'-diphosphate (UDP)-glucuronosyltransferase (UGTs… (More)
