OBJECTIVE TP53 K351N mutation is associated with acquired cisplatin resistance in ovarian cancer cells following exposure to cisplatin. We investigated the effect of TP53 K351N mutation on outcome in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) who received platinum-based chemotherapy. METHODS We assessed TP53 K351N mutations by allele specific real-time PCR (AS-PCR) and DNA sequencing in tumor samples of 153 patients with stage IIIC/IV EOC. Clinicopathologic and follow-up data were… CONTINUE READING
