The present study was performed to evaluate the association of p53 codon 72 polymorphism and endometriosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We investigate 74 women who were operated for endometriosis and 93 women who had no endometriotic lesion proved by operation. Polymerase chain reaction was used to detect p53 codon polymorphisms. Result: We have found no significant difference between endometriosis and control group in the p53 codon polymorphism. The respective proportion of arginine homozygotes, heterozygotes and proline homozygotes in endometriosis group were 18.9%, 62.2% and 18.9%, respectively, and were 12.9%, 75.2% and 11.9%, respective in the group without endometriosis. CONCLUSION: Endometriosis is not associated with p53 polymorphism in Korean endometriosis patients.
Key Words: Endometriosis; p53; Polymorphism; Arginine; Proline
