Abstract Susceptibility to lung cancer has been shown to be modulated by inheritance of polymorphic genes encoding cytochrome P450 1A1 (CYP1A1) and glutathione S transferases (GSTM1 and GSTT1), which are involved in the bioactivation and detoxification of environmental toxins. As the incidence of lung cancer is known to differ according to ethnicity, we have conducted a case-control study of 146 South Indian lung cancer patients along with 146 healthy controls, to assess any association between CYP1A1, GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphisms, either separately or in combination, with the likelihood of development of lung cancer in our population. The current weight of evidence from our study indicated that the frequency of CYP1A1 MspI homozygous variant alleles was significantly higher in cases (OR = 3.178). We observed a considerable difference in the GSTT1 null deletion frequency in this population when compared with other populations (OR = 2.472, 95\% CI: 1.191-5.094, P = 0.014). There was no relative risk in GSTM1 null genotype when analysed singly (P = 0.453). Considering genotype combinations, risk of lung cancer increased remarkably significantly in individuals having one variant allele of CYP1A1, GSTM1, or GSTT1, suggesting gene-gene interactions. Rare genotypic combinations (such as CYP1A1 wild GSTM1 or GSTT1 either null; CYP1A1 variant both GSTM1 and GSTT1 present; CYP1A1 variant GSTM1 or GSTT1 either null), were at higher risk compared to the reference group. Moreover, patients who had smoked <20 pack years and harboured the CYP1A1 variant allele or the GSTT1 null genotype also had a significant risk of lung cancer. Hence our study-the first to analyse a South Indian population-suggests the importance of combined CYP1A1, GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphisms in the development of smoking-induced lung cancer.
