Abstract

IHC has a certain false positive and false negative rate in detecting p53 gene mutations. Malignant biological behaviours of rectal cancer are not enhanced by p53 and K-ras gene mutations. Co-mutation of p53 and K-ras gene has neither synergic carcinogenesis-promoting effect, nor prognostic effect on rectal cancer.
