p53 Codon 72 polymorphism genotype and detection of HPV 16 and/or 18 E6 transcript in SCCHN (n = 122)

HPV negative (n = 85)HPV positive (n = 37)OR (95% CI)
Arg/Arg (n = 66)49171.0 (reference)
Arg/Pro (n = 55)35201.17 (0.91-1.49)
Pro/Pro (n = 1)10Not done
  • NOTE: The risk for persisting expression of HPV E6 transcript in heterozygote versus homozygote individuals was determined by the calculation of OR and 95% CI.
