BACKGROUND: Previous studies have suggested that Glutathione S-transferase (GST) genotypes may play a role in determining susceptibility to lung cancer, though the data are often conflicting. In different ethnic groups variations in null allele frequency has been observed. AIMS: We aimed to evaluate whether genetic polymorphisms of Glutathione S-transferase theta (GSTT1) influence individual susceptibility to lung cancer in Turkish population. We tried to clarify the frequencies of GSTM1 gene… CONTINUE READING
