INTRODUCTION Malignant transformation of sex-steroid dependent tissues is associated with the loss of expression of sex steroid receptors as well as of the tumor suppression gene p53. The aim of this study is to evaluate the expression of sex-steroid receptors, p53 and Ki-67 in specimens from pre-malignant and malignant cervical epithelial lesions throughout the menstrual cycle. MATERIAL AND METHODS Immunohistochemical staining was performed on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue… Expand
