Pathogenesis and genetic factors influencing predisposition to antituberculosis drug-induced hepatotoxicity (ATDH) are not clear. Polymorphism at the genetic locus of a drug and xenobiotic compound metabolizing enzyme, N-acetyltransferase type 2 (NAT2), is reported to be associated with the excess generation of toxic reactive metabolites. To date, many case-control studies have been carried out to investigate the relationship between the NAT2 polymorphisms and ATDH, but the results have been inconsistent. To investigate this inconsistency, a meta-analysis was performed. Databases including PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE and CNKI were searched to find relevant studies. A total of 26 case-control studies, involving 1,198 cases and 2,921 controls were included. Overall, we found significant association between slow acetylator genotype of NAT2 and ATDH (OR = 3.10, 95 % CI: 2.47-3.88, P < 10(-5)). Significant results were also found in East Asians, South Asians, Brazilians and Middle Eastern when stratified by ethnicity. However, no significant associations were found for Caucasians. This meta-analysis demonstrated that the slow acetylator genotype of NAT2 is a risk factor associated with increased ATDH susceptibility, but these associations vary in different ethnic populations.
