The common p53 codon 72 polymorphism has been investigated as a risk factor for cancer in different populations; however, the results have been inconsistent. This study investigated the risk of developing gastric or colorectal cancer associated with the p53 codon 72 polymorphism in a Korean population. We conducted a large-scale case–control study that included 2,213 gastric cancer patients; 1,829 colorectal cancer patients; and 1,700 healthy controls. Genotyping was performed with real-time… CONTINUE READING
