Abstract

The prognostic significance of the squamous cell carcinomas of the oral and oropharynx have been evaluated to identify those features associated with aggressive biologic behavior according to the immunologic and histologic characteristics. For determining prognostic indicators, the authors performed immunohistochemical staining of p53 and epidermal growth factor receptor(EGFR) in 29 cases of squamous cell carcinomas of the oral and oropharynx. The expression rate of p53 was 51.7%, that of EGFR was 96.6%, and overexpression rate of EGFR was 41.4%, however there were no statistical significance between the reactivity of EGFR, p53 and clinicopathological features such as primary stage, nodal stage, clinical stage, death and histologic grade.
