Hypothesis: To assess the frequency distribution of the CYP1A1 and CYP2D6 gene polymorphisms in Israeli Jewish women with cervical cancer.
Methods: Forty-three Israeli Jewish women with cervical cancer and 123 healthy Israeli Jewish women were assessed. CYP1A1 (2 alleles) and CYP2D6 polymorphism was analyzed using an allele-specific, polymerase chain reaction-based method.
Results: The allele frequency and genotype distribution for the CYP1A1 (2 alleles) and CYP2D6 polymorphism did not reach a level of significance. Smoking was the only independent risk factor for cervical cancer (P = 0.0003).
Conclusion: CYP1A1 and CYP2D6 mutations are not related to an increased risk for cervical cancer in the Jewish Israeli population.
- Cervical cancer
- Gene polymorphism
