Title Effects of genetic polymorphisms of N-acetyltransferase on trichloroethylene-induced hypersensitivity dermatitis among exposed workers
Bibliographic information Sep. 2009, Vol.47, No.5, p.479-486. 41 ref.
Internet access [in English]
Abstract This case-control study was conducted to investigate effects of various genotypes and phenotypes of N-acetyltransferases (NATs) on individual susceptibility to trichloroethylene (TCE)-induced hypersensitivity dermatitis. The study involved 111 patients with hypersensitivity dermatitis and 154 healthy TCE-exposed workers. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism was used to detect the polymorphic sites of NATs. Data were subjected to logistic regression analyses. Findings are discussed.
