Genetic polymorphisms of tobacco- and alcohol-related metabolizing enzymes and oral cavity cancer.

Abstract

Both genetic and environmental factors are involved in the development of cancer. Oral cavity cancer has been reported to be epidemiologically associated with tobacco and alcohol consumption. We examined genetic polymorphisms of the glutathione-S-transferase (GST) M1/T1, cytochrome P-450 (CYP) 1A1/2E1 and aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) genes in 92… (More)
