Abstract AIM: Ths study aims to explore the relationship between COX-2 gene polymorphism and the hereditary susceptibility or endoomeyriosis and adenomyosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gene polymorphism in COX-2 gene was genotyped in 170 cases of endometriosis, 150 cases of adenomyosis, and 240 matched non-endometriosis and non-adenomyosis controls. RESULTS: Genotypic frequencies of GG, AG, and AA in COX-2 locus in endometriosis and adenomyosis were 16.5\%, 51.2\%, 32.4\% and 16.0\%, 49.3\%, 34.7\%, respectively. They were both significantly different from those in the control group (24.6\%, 53.3\%, and 22.1\%) (p < 0.05). An allele frequency in endometriosis and adenomyosis were significantly higher than that in the control group. The risk of endometriosis or adenomyosis for those carrying two A alleles were 2.19 and 2.41 times to non-A genotype. CONCLUSION: Genetic variation of G to A at -1195 locus in the promoter region of COX-2 gene increases the risk of endometriosis and adenomyosis, and the genetic susceptibility of these two diseases are similar.
