We aimed to evaluate the genetic variation of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) in the development of gliomas among Chinese individuals.
Patients with a confirmed diagnosis of glioma and healthy individuals with no clinical symptoms of glioma were enrolled at Liaocheng People’s Hospital, China. Genetic polymorphisms were studied in plasma samples by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay. Cytokine levels were measured routinely in serum samples by sandwich ELISA technique.
A total of 120 Chinese patients with gliomas and 120 healthy Chinese individuals were included. We found that patients with the GG genotype (odds ratio [OR] 2.53, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.46-4.38, p<0.001) and carriers of the G allele (OR 11.5, 95% CI 6.31-21.3, p<0.0001) were at high risk of developing glioma. A del/ins polymorphism of the NF-κB1 gene (OR 4.27, 95% CI 2.43-7.50, p<0.001) was also found to be associated with glioma. In addition, significantly increased cytokine levels were observed in patients with glioma (p<0.05).
Our findings showed that PARP-1 polymorphisms are involved in the development of glioma in Chinese individuals. Also serum cytokine levels can be considered among the potential risk factors for developing glioma.
