Oxidative Stress and Genetic Variants of Xenobiotic-Metabolising Enzymes Associated with COPD Development and Severity in Serbian Adults

Oxidative Stress and Genetic Variants of Xenobiotic-Metabolising Enzymes Associated with COPD Development and Severity in Serbian Adults

Copd 14(1): 95-104

The genetic and non-genetic factors that contribute to the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are still poorly understood. We investigated the potential role of genetic variants of xenobiotic-metabolising enzymes (glutathione-S-transferase M1, GSTM1; glutathione-S-transferase T1, GSTT1; microsomal epoxide hydrolase, mEH), oxidative stress (assessed by urinary 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine, 8-oxodG/creatinine), sex, ageing and smoking habits on susceptibility to development of COPD and its severity in Serbian population. The investigated population consisted of 153 healthy subjects (85 males and 68 females) and 71 patients with COPD (33 males and 38 females). Detection of GSTM1*null, GSTT1*null, mEH Tyr113His and mEH His139Arg gene variants was performed by PCR/RFLP method. Urinary 8-oxodG was determined using HPLC-MS/MS, and expressed as 8-oxodG/creatinine. We revealed that increased urinary 8-oxodG/creatinine and leucocytosis are the strongest independent predictors for COPD development. Increased level of oxidative stress increased the risk for COPD in males [odds ratio (OR), 95% confidence interval (CI): 8.42, 2.26-31.28], more than in females (OR, 95% CI: 3.60, 1.37-9.45). Additionally, independent predictors for COPD were ageing in males (OR, 95% CI: 1.29, 1.12-1.48), while in females they were at least one GSTM1 or GSTT1 gene deletion in combination (OR, 95% CI: 23.67, 2.62-213.46), and increased cumulative cigarette consumption (OR, 95% CI: 1.09, 1.01-1.16). Severity of COPD was associated with the combined effect of low mEH activity phenotype, high level of oxidative stress and heavy smoking. In conclusion, early identification of GSTM1*null or GSTT1*null genotypes in females, low mEH activity phenotype in heavy smokers and monitoring of oxidative stress level can be useful diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers.
