We evaluated the association between GSTM1 and GSTT1 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in smokers. A meta-analysis of the published case–control studies was performed. Published literature was retrieved from PubMed, EMBASE, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), with last update in February, 2011. Data were extracted and a fixed- or random-effects model was used to calculate pooled odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals… CONTINUE READING
