Polymorphic low penetrance genes have been consistently associated with the susceptibility to a series of human tumors, including differentiated thyroid cancer. In order to determine their role in medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), we used TaqMan® SNP method to genotype 47 sporadic MTC and a control group of 578 healthy individuals for CYP1A2*F, CYP1A1m1, GSTP1, NAT2, and 72TP53. A logistic regression analysis showed that NAT2C/C (OR=3.87; 95%CI=2.11-7.10; p=2.2x10-5) and TP53C/C genotypes (OR=3.87; 95%CI=1.78-6.10; p=2.8x10-4) inheritance increased the risk of sporadic MTC. A stepwise regression analysis indicated that TP53C/C genotype contributes with 8.07% of the sporadic MTC risk. We were unable to identify any relationship between NAT2 and TP53 polymorphisms suggesting they are independent factors of risk to sporadic MTC. In addition, there was no association between the investigated genes and clinical or pathological features of aggressiveness of the tumors or the outcome of MTC patients. In conclusion, we demonstrated that detoxification genes and apoptotic and cell-cycle control genes are involved in the susceptibility of sporadic MTC and may modulate the susceptibility to the disease.
