Overexpression of p53 protein correlates with a high risk of malignant transformation of adenomas in patients with multiple colorectal adenomas



Overexpression of p53 protein correlates with a high risk of malignant transformation of adenomas in patients with multiple colorectal adenomas



Pathology International. 48(4): 281-286, Il



To assess the correlation of p53 oncoprotein expression with the high risk of developing carcinomas in patients with multiple colorectal adenomas, 25 cases with histologic carcinoma in adenoma (CIA) were examined by immunohistochemistry using a monoclonal antibody specific to human p53 protein (wild and mutant). The 25 cases were classified into multiple and single groups. The former contained 13 cases with synchronous multiple colorectal adenomas (one to six adenomas) and adenocarcinoma. The latter included 12 cases with single CIA only. This study revealed an overall incidence of 57.14% of p53 overexpression in carcinomatous lesions and 31.9% in adenomatous lesions, which was statistically significant (P < 0.05). The carcinomatous lesions showed a diffuse staining pattern, whereas the adenomatous lesions showed a focal pattern. A significant finding was that the incidence of p53 overexpression was significantly higher in multiple groups (81.25%) than in single groups (31.43%) in the carcinomatous (P < 0.01) rather than in the adenomatous (P > 0.05) lesions. There were no correlations between p53 overexpression and proliferation activity or carcinoembryonic antigen expression. The results indicate that p53 abnormality may be an important genetic factor responsible for the high risk of developing carcinomas in patients with multiple adenomas.
