Sažetak
Lung cancer is a complex disease, and many factors, including environmental and occupational exposure, cigarette smoking, and genetics, contribute to its progression. Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is an important regulator of blood pressure and cardiovascular homeostasis. Plasma levels of ACE depend on an insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism in its gene. Current correlation data between lung cancer and the ACE I/D polymorphism are contradictory or insufficient. We investigated whether the ACE I/D polymorphism is associated with a risk for lung cancer development in the Croatian population, representing the first report in a population of Slavic origin. A total of 308 lung cancer patients and 353 control subjects were genotyped for the ACE I/D polymorphism by polymerase chain reaction. The observed distribution of genotypes and alleles showed no significant difference between total patients and controls (P>0.050). However, in a subgroup of non-small cell lung cancer patients with squamous cell carcinoma, a significantly higher frequency of the DD genotype (37.7% vs. 27.8%, P=0.030, OR=1.57, 95% CI=1.05-2.36) and D allele was observed compared to the control group (61.3% vs. 52.8%, P=0.015, OR=1.41, 95% CI=1.07-1.87). The DD genotype of ACE may contribute to a higher risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma in the Croatian population.
