    Diisocyanates are a common cause of occupational asthma, but risk factors are not well defined. A case-control study was conducted to investigate whether genetic variants of antioxidant defense genes, glutathione S-transferases (GSTM1, GSTT1, GSTM3, GSTP1), manganese superoxide dismutase (SOD2),...

    Exposure to organic solvents is still common in industrial and other work environments, and increases the risk of chronic toxic encephalopathy (CTE). Genetic variation in metabolic enzymes for solvents and other xenobiotics may modify the risk of developing toxic effects. Therefore, we...

    Endogenous DNA damage levels were analyzed in relation to polymorphisms in genes encoding phase I detoxifying enzyme-CYP1A1, phase II detoxifying enzymes-GSTM1, GSTT1, GSTP1 and enzyme involved in nucleotide excision repair-XPD. The study group consisted of 220 healthy non-smoking volunteers; 90...

    The relationships between some metabolic (including EPHX1, GSTs and NQO1) gene polymorphisms and colorectal adenoma (CRA) risk have been commonly studied, and no conclusions are available up to now. Therefore, we quantitatively studied the relationships by a metaanalysis. The databases of...

    Smoking is considered as the major causal factor of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Nevertheless, a minority of chronic heavy cigarette smokers develops COPD. This suggests important contribution of other factors such as genetic predisposing. Our objective was to investigate...

    This article is a follow-up to our previous molecular epidemiology studies on the DNA damage in children from the Upper Silesia region of Poland. It is expected that metabolic and DNA repair gene polymorphisms may modulate individual susceptibility to environmental exposure. In this study, we...

    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fourth most common cancer worldwide, the main etiological factors being chronic infections with hepatitis B and C viruses. Genetic polymorphic forms of glutathione-S-transferase ( GST) and microsomal epoxide hydrolase (m EPHX) have been associated with risk...

  • Genetic polymorphism of metabolic enzymes modifies the risk of chronic solvent-induced encephalopathy. Kezic, Sanja; Calkoen, Florentine; Wenker, Mira A. M.; Jacobs, John J. L.; Verberk, Maarten M. // Toxicology & Industrial Health;2006, Vol. 22 Issue 7, p281 

    In the present study, we investigate whether genetic polymorphism in enzymes involved in the metabolism of organic solvents influences susceptibility to chronic solvent encephalopathy (CSE), which is one of the major effects of long-term exposure to organic solvents. Polymorphisms in the genes...
