    ABSTRACT: Loss of P53 function is regarded as one of the critical steps in colorectal carcinogenesis. This study determines the P53 expression pattern of colorectal carcinoma in a cohort of 116 local patients. There was no significant relationship between overexpression of P53 with tumour stage (p=-0.209, chi square test) and grade (p=0.877, chi square test). Survival analysis using Kaplan-Meier procedure did not show significant relationship between P53 positivity with overall recurrence-free and survival outcome (p=0.3322 and 0.921 respectively; log rank test). Long-term follow-up may give a better evaluation on the prognostic value of P53 overexpression in colorectal carcinoma.

    ABSTRACT: To study the incidence of p53 oncoprotein overexpression and its relationship to tumour grade, stage and clinical prognosis in a cohort of local Malaysian patients. All cases of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder diagnosed and treated at the University of Malaya Medical Centre from January 1995 to December 2000 were retrieved from the hospital records. Sections from paraffin-embedded tissues were retrieved and stained for p53 oncoprotein using immunohistochemistry techniques. P53 oncoprotein results were analyzed in relation to tumour grade, stage and clinical prognosis. Fisher's exact test was used to evaluate the relationship between categorical variables and the Kaplan-Meier procedure was used to assess survival outcomes. The Cox regression model was used for multivariate analysis. A total of 64 cases were studied. The mean follow-up period was 23.7 months. The number of p53 positive cases was significantly higher in high-grade (G3) (p = 0.006) and muscle-invasive tumours ( summation operator T2, p = 0.035). The status of p53 expression had no significant association with recurrence-free (p = 0.594) or overall survival (p = 0.955). In multivariate analysis, a multiplicity of tumours at presentation (p = 0.004) and a history of cigarette smoking (p = 0.016) were independent predictors of recurrence. Tumour stage (p = 0.024) was the single independent predictor for poor overall survival. Overexpression of p53 is associated with TCC of higher grade and tumour stage. It had no significant impact on prognosis in this cohort of TCC cases.
