Association of the CYP17 gene and CYP19 gene polymorphisms with risk of endometriosis in Japanese women

BACKGROUND: To investigate whether polymorphisms of CYP17 and CYP19 genes are associated with the risk of endometriosis, we analysed the frequency and distribution of a single nucleotide polymorphism at the 5′ untranslated region of the CYP17 gene, and a tetranucleotide (TTTA) tandem repeat polymorphism and a 3 bp insertion (I)/deletion (D) polymorphism in intron 4 of the CYP19...

Oestrogen receptor-alpha gene polymorphism is associated with endometriosis, adenomyosis and leiomyomata

Endometriosis, adenomyosis and leiomyomata develop in women of reproductive age and regress after menopause or ovariectomy, suggesting that they grow in an oestrogen-dependent fashion. We investigated whether polymorphism in the oestrogen receptor-alpha (ERα) gene is related to oestrogen-dependent benign uterine disease. A total of 203 women with regular menstrual cycles...
