PURPOSE: MDM-2 is an oncoprotein that inhibits p53 tumor-suppressor protein. These abnor malities have a role in tumorigenesis through inactivation of p53 function. To determine the clini copathological and prognostic value of MDM2 abnormalities in gastric adendegrees Carcinoma, MDM-2 & p53 protein expression were analysed in surgically resected materials of gastric adendegrees Carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty cases which had got follow-up after surgical resection were immunohistdegrees Chemically studied with p53 and MDM-2 antibodies. We defined variable clinico pathologic factors for expression of p53 and MDM-2 protein and analysed their relationships. RESULTS: Immunohistdegrees Chemical stain revealed expression of MDM-2 protein as a 52.0% (26/50) and p53 protein 20.0% (10/50), respectively. But their expressions were not assdegrees Ciated with clinicopathological factors such as T-factor, N-factor, stage, histology and differentiation. Overall, p53-negative patients seemed to have a better prognosis regardless of MDM-2 protein status (P= 0.057). MDM-2 protein status was considered to have no play as a prognostic factor. CONCLUSION: In the gastric adendegrees Carcinoma, p53 protein expression seemed to have a inverse relationship with clinical outcomes but MDM-2 protein expression, which was observed more frequently than those of p53, seemed not to be prognostic indicator.
