Antioxidant defence-related genetic variants are not associated with higher risk of secondary thyroid cancer after treatment of malignancy in childhood or adolescence

antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPX) and catalase (CAT). Manganese superoxide dismutase (SOD2) is the major antioxidant in mitochondria, catalysing the dismutation of superoxide anion to H 2 O 2 , which is then reduced to water by CAT or GPX. 20 , 21 Many studies have investigated genetic variability in genes coding for antioxidant enzymes and their relationship to cancer risk, however the results were inconclusive 22 and the data on thyroid cancer risk are lacking. 23 The most common polymorphism in the gene coding for

Functional polymorphisms in antioxidant genes in Hurthle cell thyroid neoplasm - an association of GPX1 polymorphism and recurrent Hurthle cell thyroid carcinoma

, complex defence mechanisms including many enzymes, proteins and antioxidants are involved. Antioxidant enzymes such as manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPX) and catalase (CAT) directly eliminate ROS, while glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) detoxify cytotoxic secondary metabolites. Numerous functional polymorphisms in the genes coding for antioxidant enzymes have been described that may also modify their ROS detoxification capacity. 17 Oxidative stress and ROS have been associated with several cancers and also many complex diseases like
