Abstract

The association of the programmed cell death-1 PD1.5 C>T polymorphism with cervical cancer risk has not been investigated. In this hospital-based case-control study, we analyzed 256 patients with cervical cancer and 250 healthy controls. Pearson chi-square test was used to examine differences in the distribution of genotypes between cases and controls. Association between the polymorphism and the susceptibility to cervical cancer was evaluated using unconditional logistic regression analysis. This revealed that the frequencies of the three genotypes (CC, CT, and TT) in cervical cancer cases and controls were 17.58, 65.23, and 17.19% and 24.80, 40.40, and 34.80%, respectively; the difference between the two groups was significant (P
