Abstract

Aims: We investigated the significance of apoptosis, using the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase mediated dUTP-digoxigenin nick end-labelling method, in nasopharyngeal carcinoma biopsy samples. Methods and results: The apoptotic index (AI) in 50 nasopharyngeal carcinomas was compared with various histopathological features and clinical stage. Also, the AI was correlated with p53, bcl-2 and Ki67 expression by immunohistochemistry. In histopathological studies, the AI was significantly higher in mixed cellular type (MC) than in keratizing squamous cell type (KS) and spindle cell type (SC) (P
