The aim of this research was to study the influence of GSTP1 A313G polymorphism on susceptibility, chemotherapy-related toxicity and prognosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma in Ukrainian patients. Methods. The polymorphic variants of GSTP1 gene were analyzed using Allelic Discrimination Real-Time PCR. Results. The GSTP1 polymorphism is not directly involved in the development of Hodgkin's lymphoma and chemotherapy-related toxicity, but homozygous wild genotype of this gene is associated with a worse
