Loss of Bcl-2 expression in colon cancer: a prognostic factor for recurrence in stage II colon cancer.

Abstract

AIMS To evaluate the prognostic value of immunohistochemical expression of Bcl-2 in colon cancers. PATIENTS AND METHODS Two hundred and twenty-six resected and paraffin-embedded colon carcinomas were analysed by immunostaining using monoclonal antibodies for Bcl-2. We evaluated whether the Bcl-2 staining patterns, semi-quantitatively assessed, could be… (More)
