Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are naturally produced during cooking processes for meats and fish. Among HCAs, 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP) is classified as ‘reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen’. The present study investigated the correlation between human exposure levels of PhIP and the role of genetic polymorphisms of enzymes on PhIP metabolism. The SNPs of CYP1A1/T6235C (MSP I) and CYP1A2/-2467delT showed significant differences in PhIP excretion (P< 0.05). These results could improve understanding of populations subject to PhIP-derived health risk.
