          Abstract

          Polymorphism in the p53 gene at codon 72 has been linked to the development of certain diseases including cancer. A possible association between such polymorphism and the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes is being investigated, but no conclusive evidence has been reached yet. Our study is the first pilot study to be conducted on Kuwaitis suffering from CAD and diabetes, aiming at investigating the possible existence of the above association.
