The p53 codon 72 polymorphism (rs1042522) is associated with proliferative vitreoretinopathy: the Retina 4 Project.
PURPOSE: To compare the distribution of a p53 gene polymorphism among European subjects undergoing primary retinal detachment (RD) surgery in relation to the development of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). DESIGN: Case-controlled gene association study conducted as a component of the Retina 4 Project (a European multicenter study). PARTICIPANTS AND CONTROLS: Five hundred fifty DNA samples, 134 with PVR secondary to primary RD and 416 with RD without PVR. METHODS: The p53 codon 72 polym...Expand abstract
