Graphical Abstract:


Background: Genetic changes in p53 gene contribute to breast cancer susceptibility.

Objective and Methods: A case-control study and a meta-analysis were performed to investigate the role of p53 codon72 SNP with breast cancer susceptibility in Indian women.

Results: p53 heterozygous arginine variant was associated with decreased risk of breast cancer in total cohort. In meta-analysis, Allelic and GG vs. CC genetic comparison model were found to be associated with breast cancer risk. Moreover, recessive comparison model indicated a protective correlation with breast cancer occurrence.

Conclusion: The findings of our case-control study and meta-analysis suggest a significant association between p53 Arg72Pro polymorphism and an increased risk of breast cancer in Indian population.

Keywords: p53 codon72 SNP, Breast cancer, Indian populations, Case-control, Meta-analysis, p53 Arg72Pro polymorphism.
