Glutathione S-transferase polymorphisms in varicocele patients: a meta-analysis

B. Zhu, Yin, L., and Zhang, J. Y., Glutathione S-transferase polymorphisms in varicocele patients: a meta-analysis, vol. 14, pp. 18851-18858, 2015.

The glutathione S-transferase (GST) family represents a major group of detoxification and antioxidant enzymes. Studies have shown that high oxidative stress levels are associated with varicocele. The objective of this study was to assess the relationship between GSTM1 and GSTT1 null polymorphisms and varicocele using a study group of 497 varicocele patients and 476 control subjects. A systematic literature search (for articles published up to September 2014) utilizing Google Scholar and PubMed was conducted.
