AB  - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex disorder influenced by multiple genetic and environmental factors, as well as their interactions. Since elevated oxidative stress and protease activity characterize the pathogenesis of COPD, variants of genes that can affect these processes have been commonly studied in COPD. However, interactions among genes that can influence oxidative stress and protease activity remain poorly investigated in COPD. The aim of this study was to look into the role of functional variants in matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) 1, 9, and 12 in the occurrence and/or modulation of COPD, and to analyze their interactions with glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) M1, T1, and P1 in the pathogenesis of COPD in Serbians. The MMP1 rs1799750 G > GG, MMP9 rs3918242 C > T, and MMP12 rs2276109 A > G variants were analyzed by direct detection methods. Gene-gene interactions between variants in MMPs and GSTs were assessed using a case-control model. Our results showed association of the MMP1 GG/GG genotype with COPD (p = 0.036, OR = 2.50). Gene-gene interactions between the GSTM1 null and MMP1 GG (p = 0.028, OR = 2.99) and the GSTM1 null and MMP12 AA variants (p = 0.015, OR = 3.82) were found to significantly increase the risk of COPD occurrence. Furthermore, the MMP12 G variant was found to modify the age of COPD onset (p = 0.025, OR = 3.30), while interaction between the GSTM1 null and MMP9 T variants was found to modify the severity of disease (p = 0.019, OR = 4.83). To our best knowledge, this is the first study revealing several gene-gene interactions affecting oxidative stress and protease activity in the pathogenesis of COPD.

AB  - The aetiology of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is complex. While cigarette smoking is a well-established cause of COPD, a myriad of assessed genetic factors has given conflicting data. Since gene-environment interactions are thought to be implicated in aetiopathogenesis of COPD, we aimed to examine the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 9 C-1562T (rs3918242) functional variant and cigarette smoke in the pathogenesis of this disease. The distribution of the MMP9 C-1562T variant was analyzed in COPD patients and controls with normal pulmonary function from Serbia. Interaction between the C-1562T genetic variant and cigarette smoking was assessed using a case-control model. The response of the C-1562T promoter variant to cigarette smoke condensate (CSC) exposure was examined using a dual luciferase reporter assay. The frequency of T allele carriers was higher in the COPD group than in smoker controls (38.4% vs. 20%; OR=2.7, P=0.027). Interaction between the T allele and cigarette smoking was identified in COPD occurrence (OR=4.38, P=0.005) and severity (P=0.001). A functional analysis of the C-1562T variant demonstrated a dose-dependent and allele-specific response (P lt 0.01) to CSC. Significantly higher MMP9 promoter activity following CSC exposure was found for the promoter harboring the T allele compared to the promoter harboring the C allele (P lt 0.05). Our study is the first to reveal an interaction between the MMP9-1562T allele and cigarette smoke in COPD, emphasising gene-environment interactions as a possible cause of lung damage in the pathogenesis of COPD.

AB  - Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex disorder characterized by increased oxidative stress. Functional genetic variants of phase I and II genes are implicated in oxidants antioxidants imbalance and may be involved in COPD development. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of cytochrome P450 (CYP), glutathione S-transferase (GST) and microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEH) functional variants in the pathogenesis of COPD in a Serbian population. Methods: The genotypes of 122 COPD patients and 100 controls with normal lung function were determined for CYP1A1 *1A/*2A, CYP2E1 *1A/*5B, GSTM1 null, GSTT1 null GSTP1 11e105Val, mEH Tyr113His and mEH His139Arg gene variants. Results: Results obtained showed that GSTM1 null variant was significantly more represented in COPD patients than in controls (61.5% vs. 47.0%; OR=1.80; p=0.042). Also, a significant difference was observed for combinations of GSTM1 null and GSTP1 105Val/(Val) (38.5% vs. 24.0%; OR=1.98; p=0.029), as well as for CYP1A1 *1A/*2A, GSTM1 null and mEH 113His/(His) genotypes (7.4% vs. 1.0%; OR=7.88; p=0.025). Conclusions: These are the first data concerning the analysis of the variants of phase I and II genes in the pathogenesis of COPD in a Serbian population. Results obtained in this study open up the possibility for thorough analyses of the role of genetic factors in COPD on larger cohorts. Also, they implicate the importance of previously described genetic associations with COPD in our population, as well as reveal a new one, not reported so far.

AB  - Background and Objectives Polymorphisms of beta2-adrenergic receptor gene (ADRB2) are clinically relevant for several reasons, including as a risk factor for asthma development/severity and predicting the effectiveness of treatment with beta2-agonists in reducing asthma symptoms. The aim of this study was to examine the association between ADRB2 gene polymorphisms and asthma in the Serbian population, and to evaluate the therapeutic response in relation to the ADRB2 genotype. Methods The study included 171 patients with asthma and 101 healthy subjects as the control group. Genotyping of Arg16Gly and Gln27Glu polymorphisms was performed by direct sequencing of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products. Results In Serbian adults, carriers of the 27Gln allele and 27Gln/Gln genotype were at higher risk of asthma [odds ratio (OR) 2.5, 95 % confidence interval (CI) 1.6-3.8, and OR 3.00, 95 % CI 1.7-5.3, respectively], while the presence of the 27Glu allele and 27Gln/Glu genotype were found to be protective of asthma (OR 0.4, 95 % CI 0.3-0.6, and OR 0.3, 95 % CI 0.1-0.7, respectively). Furthermore, we found that the presence of the 27Gln allele in asthmatics younger than 50 years leads to a better response to therapy with long-acting beta2-agonists (LABA) in combination with prevailing low and moderate doses of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), while carriers of the 27Glu allele over 50 years old are more likely to respond to LABA + ICS therapy. Conclusion We identified that in Serbian adults the 27Gln allele and 27Gln homozygosity are risk factors for asthma, which may be of clinical interest in disease prevention. The finding that younger carriers of the 27Gln allele respond better to LABA + ICS therapy may be utilized in personalized asthma treatment.

AB  - Aim: Alpha-1-antitrypsin (A1AT) is the main inhibitor of neutrophil elastase, and severe alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency (A1ATD) is a genetic risk factor for early-onset emphysema. Despite the relatively high prevalence of A1ATD, this condition is frequently underdiagnosed. Our aim was to determine the distribution of the A1ATD phenotypes/alleles in patients with lung diseases as well as in the Serbian population. Methods: The study included the adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (n = 348), asthma (n = 71), and bronchiectasis (n = 35); the control was 1435 healthy blood donors. The A1ATD variants were identified by isoelectric focusing or polymerase chain reaction-mediated site-directed mutagenesis. Results: PiMZ heterozygotes, PiZZ homozygotes, and Z allele carriers are associated with significantly higher risk of developing COPD than healthy individuals (odds ratios 3.43, 42.42, and 5.49 respectively). The calculated prevalence of PiZZ, PiMZ, and PiSZ was higher in patients with COPD (1:202, 1:8, and 1:1243) than in the Serbian population (1: 5519, 1: 38, and 1:5519). Conclusion: The high prevalence of A1ATD phenotypes/allele in our population has confirmed the necessity of screening for A1ATD in patients with COPD. On the other hand, on the basis of the estimated number of those with A1ATD among the COPD patients, it is possible to assess the diagnostic efficiency of A1ATD in the Serbian population.
