Introduction: The role of genetic factors in obesity has long been recognized, but their involved specific genes remained unidentified. The relationship between p53 gene single nucleotide polymorphisms and the risk of obesity has been investigated in recent years. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the association of p53 Arg72Pro C>G (rs1042522) polymorphism with the risk of obesity in our study.
