To evaluate the prognostic value of proliferative maker Ki-67, its expression was determined immunohistochemically in 37 gallbladder carcinomas (GBCs). A high Ki-67 index was significantly correlated with tumor lymphatic invasion (P=0.007) and vascular invasion (P=0.04). High Ki-67 index group and low Ki-67 index group showed different clinical courses. Five patients who experienced recurrences in high Ki-67 index group developed their recurrent diseases within one year after surgery and died soon after recurrence, while the recurrences (five cases) in low Ki-67 index group were distributed all stages after surgery.

Abstract

To evaluate the prognostic value of proliferative maker Ki-67, its expression was determined immunohistochemically in 37 gallbladder carcinomas (GBCs). A high Ki-67 index was significantly correlated with tumor lymphatic invasion (P=0.007) and vascular invasion (P=0.04). High Ki-67 index group and low Ki-67 index group showed different clinical courses. Five patients who experienced recurrences in high Ki-67 index group developed their recurrent diseases within one year after surgery and died soon after recurrence, while the recurrences (five cases) in low Ki-67 index group were distributed all stages after surgery. In conclusion, high Ki-67 index predicts early recurrence after surgery for GBCs
