This aim of the study was to investigate the effect of CYP1A2 gene polymorphism on the metabolism of theophylline in minority and Han nationality. A total of 50 cases of Han (Han group) and 50 minority nationalities (ethnic groups) treated with theophylline were selected for the study. The genotype and allele frequencies of the two groups of CYP1A2 gene, G-3113A and G-3860A, were compared to determine the rate of theophylline clearance. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the concentration of the homeostasis and the rate of the theophylline removal rate (P>0.05). There was no significant difference in the genotype and allele frequencies of the CYP1A2 gene, G-3113A and G-3860A apolymorphic site. This study employed a logarithm to determine theophylline clearance in order to correlate it with the normal distribution. The results showed that the theophylline clearance of the two groups of CYP1A2 G-3113A gene loci A allele carriers (AA+GA genotype) was significantly lower than that of the G allele carriers (GG genotype), and a significant difference between the groups was identified (P<0.05). There was no significant difference in the theophylline clearance rates in the two groups for the CYP1A2 gene, G-3860A apolymorphic site (P>0.05). Compared to the GG genotype of the CYP1A2 gene, the G-3113A site AA and GA genotype patients had a low clearance rate in the theophylline, whereas there was no correlation between teh genotypes of the CYP1A2 gene, G-3860A and the rate of theophylline clearance.
