The possible interaction between gene polymorphism and cancer risk development is a very interesting issue. The genetic variants of the ATP-binding cassette superfamily B member 1 (ABCB1) are known to be involved in developing cancer risk and individual differences in chemotherapeutic response. Polymorphisms may affect the reduction of the activity and/or expression of important protective cellular proteins. The increased exposure to toxic compounds, including carcinogens is associated with an

The present study was aimed to evaluate the possible effect of ABCB1 T-129C single nucleotide polymorphism in risk of cancer development in Polish patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma. 91 multiple myeloma patients and 94 healthy controls were enrolled in this case-control study. The ABCB1 T-129C genotypes were determined by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method (PCR-RFLP). The distribution of particular genotypes between multiple myeloma patients and controls group was not significantly different for T-129C SNP (p = 0.4297). The studied polymorphism does not seem to affect the increased risk of multiple myeloma development.
