Abstract About 15-20% of patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) treated with ABVD chemotherapy ± radiotherapy still die following relapse or progressive disease. Outcome might be influenced by gene polymorphisms influencing chemotherapy metabolism. We studied 126 patients with HL treated with ABVD regimen. We analyzed glutathione S-transferases (GSTT1, GSTM1 and GSTP1), cytochromes P450 (CYP3A4, CYP2D6), UGT1A1 and BLMH gene polymorphisms and their association with clinical and outcome variables. Patients with a GSTM1 genotype associated with extensive or ultrahigh activity had a probability of 93.8% to achieve complete response, while the rest of the patients had a probability of 82.3% (P=0.04). This variable maintained its statistical significance in multivariate analysis (HR 3.7, CI 95% 1 - 13, p= 0.05). Patients with an extensive or ultrahigh GSTM1 genotype had better prognostic factors than those with poor or intermediate genotypes (Hb level, P=0.003; serum albumin, P=0.05; and IPS, P=0.038). Thus, in the treatment of HL, clinical determinants might be more relevant than the pharmacogenetic parameters analyzed to date.
