Abstract

Background: Significance of serum appearance of anti-p53 antibody in breast cancer has not been discussed fully. Methods: The relationship between serum appearance of anti-p53 antibody and the clinicopathological features was investigated on the basis of the data of 42 women with breast cancer who had been treated with surgical resection. Results: The proportion of tumors with histological grade 3 was significantly higher among tumors with serum appearance of anti-p53 antibody (P = 0.020). The proportion of triple negative tumors was also significantly higher among tumors with serum appearance of anti-p53 antibody (P = 0.003). Conclusions: Preoperative appearance of anti-p53 antibody in sera can be correlated with the incidence of triple negative breast cancer and could therefore help identify tumors with aggressive potential.
