Abstract

Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the association between manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) gene C47 T polymorphism and the risk of malignant lung cancer in Iraqi smokers. Methods: Blood samples were obtained from 260 lung cancer patients (88 females and 172 males) and 295 healthy individuals (91 females and 204 males). DNA was extracted from blood samples and the SOD2 gene was amplified using specific primers. The nucleotide sequences of the SOD2 gene were analyzed by using BLAST server at National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and the Raptorx app. Results: TT, CT, and CC genotypes concentrations were 48.1%, 33.2%, and 18.7%, respectively, in the control group. The concentrations of TT, CT, and CC genotypes were 43.5%, 31.5%, and 25%, respectively, in the case group. There were no statistical differences between cases and controls in terms of genotype frequency of SOD2C47T polymorphism. We observed that SOD2C47T polymorphism CT genotype did not increase the risk of lung cancer development compared to those with TT genotype (OR= 0.951, 95% CI = 0.648-1.396; P = 0.798). In addition, it was observed that CC genotype did not increase the risk of lung cancer development in comparison with TT genotype ( OR=0.673, 95% Cl=0.435-1.041: P=0.075).Conclusion: These results indicated that there was no association between SOD2C47T polymorphism and the risk of lung cancer development in Iraqi smokers.
