The polymorphism Arg72Pro gene p53 is characterized by a change of cytosine on glycine in the 72-codon of ex4, that leads to two different variants of protein p53: with either aminoacid arginine or proline in the area, involved in apoptotic activity p53. It is shown that the 72Arg-form p53 initialized cellular death more effectively, than the 72Pro-form. However, the 72Pro-variant more effectively provides for DNA reparation.

Purpose: To analyze the 3-year survival of patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) depending on changes in the polymorphic locus Arg72Pro gene p53.

Methods: 99 patients with NHL were examined, 42 of them with aggressive and 57 with indolent lymphomas. The polymorphism gene p53 was researched by PCR-PLRF-analysis. The Kaplan-Meier method was used for survival analysis.

Results: In the examined group the 3-year overall survival was 76%. Reduction of survival was noted in patients with aggressive lymphomas having Pro-variant gene p53, in comparison with persons with normal genotype Arg/Arg: 83% against 95%. The patients with indolent lymphomas and Pro-variant of the gene p53 had a more successful 3-year survival (79%) in comparison with Arg/Arg persons (48%) (p<0.05).

Conclusions: The results of this study indicate that changes in 72-codon of ex4 gene p53 may be potential markers of prognosis of a NHL patient’s survival. Future studies to determine the mechanism of their influence upon survival of the patients with different variants of NHL are required.
