BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The p53 codon 72 polymorphism affects human papillomavirus (HPV) E6-mediated degradation of p53. This study was to investigate distribution of p53 polymorphism in Guangdong women, and relationship between p53 polymorphism and tumorigenesis of cervical cancer. METHODS Cervical smears of 46 patients with cervical cancer (case group), and 84 patients with benign gynecologic tumor (control group) treated in our hospital from Sept. 2002 to May 2003 were collected.
