Is the aberrant expression of p53 by immunocytochemistry a surrogate marker of TP53 mutation and/or deletion in chronic lymphocytic leukemia?
We read with interest the article by Chang et al1 in which the aberrant expression of nuclear p53 detected by immunohistochemical analysis in 10% or more of bone marrow biopsy cells of 14 of 110Expand
