Department of Gynecology, Medical School, Poznan, Poland.


The analyzed material included 41 sections originating from patients with squamous cell carcinoma at the III stage of clinical advancement. Size of tumor growth fractions and expression of p53 were evaluated using immunohistochemical methods. In most of cases, the Ki 67 index for uterine cervix carcinoma at the III stage of clinical advancement ranged between 5 and 30%. The p53 protein could seldom be detected, indicating infrequent p53 mutations in uterine cervix carcinoma. In cases exhibiting nuclear accumulation of p53 the proliferative index was high and ranged between 50% and 80%.
