Abstract

A case-control study was conducted for analyzing the genetic polymorphisms of phase II metabolic enzymes in 97 patients with lung cancer and 197 healthy subjects from Han ethnic group of Hunan Province located in Central South China. The results showed that the frequencies of glutathione S-transferase (GST) M1-null (GSTM1-) or GSTT1-null (GSTT1-) genotype alone, or combined form of both in lung cancer patients were significantly higher than those of the controls. Genotypes of combining GSTP1 mutant/GSTM1(-) or GSTP1 mutant/GSTT1(-) led to high risk of lung cancer. Individuals carrying any two or all three of GSTM1(-), GSTT1(-) and GSTP1 mutant genotypes have a distinctly increased risk of lung cancer when compared to those with GSTM1 present (GSTM1+: GSTM1+/+ or GSTM1+/−), GSTT1 present (GSTT1+: GSTT1+/+ or GSTT1+/−) and GSTP1 wild genotypes. Furthermore, individuals possessing combined genotypes of N-acetyltransferase 2 (NAT2) rapid acetylator, GSTP1 mutant and both GSTT1(-) and GSTM1(-) have a remarkably higher lung cancer risk than those carrying combined NAT2 slow acetylator genotype, GSTP1 wild genotype and both GSTT1(+) and GSTM1(+) genotypes. All these findings suggest that the genetic polymorphisms of phase II metabolic enzymes affect the susceptibility of lung cancer in the Han ethnic group of Central South China.
