heal.abstract Glutathione-S-transferace polymorphisms may make hematopoietic lineage cells susceptible to genotoxicity following exposure to heavy metals or benzene. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to define the effect of GSTM1 and GSTT1 null polymorphisms on MDS risk. We searched the PubMed and SCOPUS databases to identify peer-reviewed published case-control studies investigating the association between GSTT1 and/or GSTM1 null genotypes and development of MDS. Between-study heterogeneity was assessed using Cochran's Q statistic and the I-2 statistic. Odds ratios from individual studies were pooled using fixed and random effects models. Thirteen studies were considered eligible for the GSTT1 meta-analysis (1471 cases, 1907 controls) and 10 were considered eligible for the GSTM1 meta-analysis (1161 cases, 1668 controls). For the GSTT1 polymorphism, there was moderate between study heterogeneity (p(Q) = 0.01; I-2 = 52.3%) and the null genotype was significantly associated with increased risk of MDS development, random effects OR = 1.43 (95% CI, 1.09-1.89); p = 0.01. For the GSTM1 polymorphisms there was moderate between-study heterogeneity (p = 0.07; I-2 = 43.1%) and the random effects OR = 1.02 (95% CI, 0.82-1.28) was non-significant (p = 0.85). The GSTT1 null genotype is a significant risk factor for MDS development. Gene-environment interactions need to be further explored. en
