Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) have been associated with outcome in human cancers treated with cytotoxic chemotherapy. In a case-control study, we investigated the association between polymorphisms within the GSTM1, GSTT1, and GSTP1 genes and risk of relapse in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Cases were relapsed patients. Controls were successfully treated patients with a minimum follow-up of 5 years. The null genotype (absence of both alleles) for GSTM1 or GSTT1 conferred a 2… CONTINUE READING
