Shorter CAG repeats in androgen receptor and non-GG genotypes in prostate-specific antigen loci are associated with decreased risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer.
The age-adjusted risk of prostate cancer (PC) has increased in Singapore since 1968. We investigated the relationship between polymorphisms in four genes, androgen receptor (AR), prostate-specific antigen (PSA), 5alpha-reductase type II (SRD5A2) and cytochrome P450c17alpha (CYP17) and PC and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Men with shorter CAG repeats in AR and above 69 years at diagnosis showed a trend of decreased PC risk (OR=0.28, 95% CI=0.08-1.03; p=0.05). Shorter CAG repeats and non-...Expand abstract
