To investigate the involvement of the CYP17, SRD5A2, CYP1B1, and CYP2D6 variants with prostate cancer, a case-control study of 100 patients and an equal number of age-matched control men was conducted. There appears to be a nonsignificant increase with risk of prostate cancer for individuals carrying one copy of the CYP17 A2 allele (OR, 1.80; 95% CI, 0.99-3.29, P = 0.05). The risk was increased in individuals having two A2 alleles (OR; 2.81, 95% CI, 1.06-7.40, P = 0.03). Compared with men having the VV genotype of SRD5A2 gene, there was no significant association between the VL genotype and the risk of prostate cancer (OR; 0.54, 95% CI; 0.29-1.03, P = 0.06). There was no difference in the occurrence of the genotype LL between controls and prostate cancer patients (OR; 0.90, 95% CI; 0.43-1.89, P = 0.79). There was a nonsignificant increased risk of prostate cancer for individuals carrying the CYP1B1Leu/Val genotype (OR, 1.70, 95% CI, 0.91-3.17, P = 0.09), which was increased in those having the Val/Val allele (OR, 3.38; 95% CI, 1.13-10.07, P = 0.02). Relative to men homozygous for the wild-type allele in CYP2D6 gene, those heterozygous for the B allele had an odds ratio of 1.78 (95% CI, 0.76-4.17, P = 0.18) for patients, and for homozygous individuals, it was 1.95 (0.55-6.93, P = 0.30). These observations have suggested that the CYP17 A2/A2, CYP1B1 Val/Val, and CYP2D6 genotypes may be associated with an altered risk of prostate cancer, while the CYP2D6 and SRD5A2 V89L polymorphism have no association with its risk in the North Indian population.
