Dear Editor,

We would like to share ideas on “TXNRD2 (rs35934224) CT genotype as possible protective marker for primary open-angle glaucoma in a Brazilian population(1).” Tenório et al. concluded that “Our data suggest an association between TXNRD2 gene polymorphism (rs35934224) with primary open-angle glaucoma in an admixed Brazilian population(1). We agree TXNRD2 (rs35934224) CT genotype might be associated with primary open-angle glaucoma. The present report can give good data on genetic underlying background of glaucoma. In this study, Tenório et al. focused only a polymorphism.

Environmental confounding factors might be well controlled but there is a chance of effects of other genetic polymorphisms which are reported for association with primary open-angle glaucoma might still exist. Examples of those genetic polymorphisms are CDKN2B-AS1, GSTO1, GSTO2, GSTP1, GPX1OPA1, MFN1, and MFN2 polymorphisms(2-4). Further studies on effects of other polymorphisms are very interesting.
