p16, is a protein that slows cell division by slowing the progression of the cell cycle from the G1 phase to the S phase, thereby acting as a tumor suppressor. It is encoded by the CDKN2A gene. A deletion in this gene can result in insufficient or non-functional p16, accelerating the cell cycle and resulting in many types of cancer. p16 can be used as a biomarker to improve the histological diagnostic accuracy of grade 3 cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. p16 is also implicated in the preventi Results: Of the 239 cases, 187 (78%) were positive for p16. Of these, 139 (74%) were positive for HPV by ISH. Of the remaining 48 cases, 45 had material for PCR. Nineteen were positive for HPV, leaving a group of 26 p16 positive and HPV undetectable SCCs . Nodal metastases of p16+ squamous cell carcinoma without an identified primary tumor are also staged under this system P16 expression is associated with prognosis in preoperatively irradiated OSCC patients. The association between p16 positivity, regression grade and improved survival provides a rationale for de‐intensification strategies in patients with head and neck cancer who respond well to neoadjuvant therapy, a concept that is being tested in prospective clinical trials The role of p16 expression as a predictive marker in HPV-positive oral SCCHN--a retrospective single-center study. p16 is not a surrogate marker for replacing PCR testing, but both methods in combination, PCR and immunohistochemistry, could lead to a higher diagnostic validation
of p16 IHC on adjudicated CIN1 tissue diagnosed in young women participating in the placebo arm of the quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine trials. Tissue sections were stained with p16 IHC and hematoxylin and eosin. p16 IHC was scored using LAST criteria, and hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections were reviewed for concordance with the adjudicated diagnosis. p16 IHC, antecedent. We found that p16 positivity was a strong independent prognostic factor for improved OS and DSS in patients with anal carcinoma, the authors concluded. Because the p16-negative tumors likely have different tumor biology, they wrote that future studies should consider stratifying patients according to p16 status p16 (CDKN2A) is a tumor suppressor gene that inhibits cyclin D-dependent protein kinases playing a vital role in the regulation of G1-S transition. p16 Gene (9p21) deletions and p16 mutations are frequent in bladder cancer and appear to be more frequent in low-grade superficial tumors compared with higher-grade invasive tumors. 302,303. Our study demonstrates that p16 positivity in squamous metaplasia of cervix is associated with the presence of transcriptionally active high-risk HPV even when there are no clear morphologic features of dysplasia In the literature, HPV infection and/or p16 positivity have been consistently demonstrated to correlate with improved response rates in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) patients treated with primary radiotherapy (RT) alone and in combination with chemotherapy. However, the exact role of HPV/p16 positivity in patients treated with postoperative RT is still unclear
We found that p16 positivity had high sensitivity for diagnosing HPV infection. Among the p16-positive patients, 94% had HPV infection; the misdiagnosis rate was only 6%. Among the p-16 negative patients, 90% were not infected with HPV, but there was a 10% of missed diagnosis. The positive LR was 6.80 (95% CI: 5.63-8.21);. Significant correlations were confirmed between p16 positivity and oropharyngeal cancer, MMP1 and p16 positivity, and recurrence and smoking. Compared to non-neoplastic tissue, miR-21, miR-200c.
This actually is a low threshold for p16 positivity and is not agreed upon, used, or recommended by most pathologists and organizations for testing. A cutoff of 70-75% is the most often utilized. p16 Distribution. Figure 2 shows p16 distribution in the 100 cervical biopsies. None of the 17 normal cervical tissues, evaluated by IHC, demonstrated p16 positivity whereas, starting from CIN1. The number of p16 INK4A-positive melanocytes was estimated by measuring the number of p16 INK4A-positive melanocytes per 100 melanocytes on the basement membrane. First, the total number of melanocytes in the area was counted and normalized per mm. Melanocytes showing p16 INK4A positivity were als Objective . To investigate the prognostic significance of HPV status in vulvar squamous cell carcinomas (VSCC) and to determine whether preoperative determination of p16 or p53 status would have clinical relevance. Methods . Patients treated for VSCC at a tertiary hospital in Sydney, Australia, from 2002 to 2014, were retrospectively evaluated (<i>n</i> = 119) There is increasing evidence that head and neck squamous cell carcinomas behave differently depending on their high-risk human papillomavirus status and p16 and EGFR overexpression. hrHPVs are polymorphic small deoxyribonucleic acid viruses that can disrupt the cell cycle, induce cellular immortalization, and lead to malignant transformation. 1 hrHPV positivity is associated with head and neck.
These studies concluded that increased p16 expression was associated with improved prognosis. 19-21 In our study, we found that p16 positivity was a strong independent prognostic factor for improved OS and DSS in patients with anal carcinoma, in both univariable and multivariable analyzes. To unify the assessment of p16 IHC in SCC, we used a. The p16INK4a ( p16) tumor suppressor gene that maps to chromosome band 9p21, is inactivated in >70% of cell lines derived from all histologic types of human nonsmall cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) ( 1, 2) predominantly through homozygous deletion ( 1) or in association with aberrant promoter region hypermethylation ( 3 ) p16 positivity can be caused by p16 expression in normal squamous metaplastic, endocervical, and atrophic cells without underlying intraepithelial neoplasia. 18, 37, 73 Their impact on the accuracy can be limited not only by a focus on the detection of at least 1 stained cervical cell (or more) but also by an investigation of the morphology of cervical cells. 25 This 2‐fold analysis enables us to discriminate between p16‐positive normal and dysplastic cells and further enhances the.

In a logistic regression model, the associations with CIN2/3 (vs. other), expressed as odds ratios (95% confidence intervals), were 1.6 (0.91-2.8) for p16 , 2.0 (1.0-3.7) for HPV16, and 2.2 (1.1-2.4) for antecedent high-grade cytology
The p16 protein expression, which is detected immunohistochemically, is an indirect marker of active HPV infection. Unlike in oropharyngeal carcinoma, in oral carcinoma, the prognostic significance of HPV/p16 positivity is unclear. Some studies even show a worse prognosis in patients with HPV/p16 positive oral carcinoma P16-positivity was defined by a strong cytoplasmic and nuclear staining throughout the whole tumor on slide (block staining). Cases showing a weak or patchy staining were considered p16-negative. TILs were assessed by HE staining
The percentage of p16-positive cells in the CIN specimens was higher than that in normal specimens, and varied between 27.2 and 83.9%, with the mean at 53.6%. Notably, p16 expression was significantly elevated in CIN samples compared to the control specimens (p<0.001, Fig. ). No correlation was found between p16 expression and the. In this study, we examined p16 INK4A positivity in the lesional and perilesional skin of 54 non-segmental vitiligo patients to explore cellular senescence in vitiligo. There were more p16 INK4A-positive melanocytes in the perilesional vitiligo skin samples than in control samples The focus of many epidemiologic studies has been in the HNC general population. A recent epidemiologic analysis of the HNC general population found a p16 positivity rate of 60% in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (OPSCC) and 10% in nonoropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (NOPSCC)
Although the relationship between p16 status and N stage was not significant, a trend to higher nodal involvement and p16 positivity was seen. Sixty-three% of p16 positive patients showed N2/N3 tumors, whereas this was only 54% in the p16 negative group (Table 1 ) HPV is a virus and p16 is one of the normal proteins within the cell that takes part in regulating the cell cycle and cellular division (replication). When HPV integrates into a person's DNA, it dysregulates mechanisms within the cell. In particular, p53 and RB are inactivated. Both genes are tumor suppressors, the they are working the decrease. The incidence of human papillomavirus (HPV)-related oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) has been rising in recent years. Given the clinical impact of HPV/p16 positivity in OPSCC, identifying surrogate markers of this disease early in the diagnostic work-up of these patients could improve patient care. Demographic, pathologic, staging and PET-CT data from patients diagnosed with OPSCC. Expression of p16(INK4A) (p16 positive) is highly correlated with human papilloma virus (HPV) infection in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), however, p16-positivity is not limited to. Fig.04 Endometrioid ovarian carcinoma with focal nuclear p16 positivity. Most of the neoplastic epithelium is p16 negative. Only single cells and small groups of cells show strong nuclear staining (mosaic pattern). Fig.05 Small proportions of a serous ovarian carcinoma with strong p16 positivity
Overall, p16/Ki-67 positivity was 59.6%, indicating that referral to colposcopy would have been reduced by almost half if p16/Ki-67 testing was used as an additional triage test in this population. The sensitivity and specificity to detect CIN2+ was 86.4% and 59.5%, respectively, and for CIN3+, it was 93.2% and 46.1%, respectively Purpose: Functional inactivation of p16 is an early and frequent event in head and neck squamous cell cancers. In this study, we sought to determine whether p16 expression is of prognostic importance in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. Experimental Design: p16 protein expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in a tissue microarray composed of 123 oropharyngeal squamous cell. The objective of this study was to describe the determinants of adequacy and positivity of the p16/Ki-67 assay in a human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive screening population enrolled within the New Technologies for Cervical Cancer 2 (NTCC2) study. ThinPrep slides were immunostained for p16/Ki-67; each slide had 3 reports from different laboratories As to possible sources of false positivity of immunochemical detection of the protein p16 INK4a the study by Agoff et al deserve mentioning. According to this communication in 10 out of 10 endometrial biopsy samples studied endometrial cells were positively stained with the p16 INK4a - specific antibody E6H4 that p16-negative patients had benefit to addition of the human anti-EGFR antibody, panitumumab, unlike p16-positive patients . However, the significance of the data has been called into question because of the limited cohort of p16-positive patients across subsites and the high rates of p16 positivity outside the oropharynx, a
Similarly, the over-expression of p16 was also re-ported in BD [13, 23-30]; however, only few studies have focused on a correlation of the expression of p16 with the HPV status in Bowen's disease and when this was performed, a correlation between p16 expres-sion with the presence of mucosal HPV types only was studied [13, 23, 24] The IHC results were scored based on the percentage positivity of staining. p16 protein expression was evaluated by two pathologists at a percentage of every 5% of the staining area of all tumor cells. For statistical comparisons, cases in which p16-positive cells exceeded 10% of the total tumor cells were considered positive The p16 positivity rate increased with pathologic and cytologic severity (P< 0.0001). For primary screening: p16 immuno-cytology was more specific than HPV testing and was similar in sensitivity. Also, p16 immuno-cytology compared favorably with routine LBC (≥ASC-US or ≥LSIL) in sensitivity and specificity
1. Introduction. The tumor suppressor protein p16 INK4a, also known as P16, is a key regulator of the cell cycle that blocks the transition from G1 phase to S phase by suppressing the cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk)-4 activity.The expression of P16 is triggered by cell injury, including DNA damage, oncogene activation, mitochondrial dysfunction, and reactive oxidative species  CINtec ® Histology: be conclusive in diagnosing cervical precancer. CINtec ® Histology provides objectivity to diagnostic interpretation that helps all pathologists identify more cervical disease. The CINtec ® Histology test is the only p16 biomarker test CE marked and U.S. 510(k) cleared for clinical use in the evaluation of cervical biopsy specimens. . Pathologists who use CINtec.
The p16(INK4A) protein attaches (binds) to two other proteins called CDK4 and CDK6. These proteins help regulate the cell cycle, which is the cell's way of replicating itself in an organized, step-by-step fashion. CDK4 and CDK6 normally stimulate the cell to continue through the cycle and divide. However, binding of p16(INK4A) blocks CDK4's or. SUVmax is associated with HPV/p16 positivity. There is therefore conflicting evidence regarding the association between SUVmax and HPV/p16 positivity in OPSCC [21, 24-26]. To this end, we aimed to determine the correlation between nodal SUVmax and p16 status of OPSCC tumors using a cohort of patients treated with primary surgery. Method Of the 33 p16 band-positive cases, 25 (76%) were HR HPV positive while 8 cases were negative. These included 5 HG CIN cases with positive Ki-67 and 1 LG CIN, 1 ASM, and 1 HG CIN each with negative Ki-67. All of the three cases with spotty p16 positivity in >75% and Ki-67 positivity in >50% of lesional cells were associated with HR HPV subtypes Thirteen cases of vulvar BCC were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for p16 and BerEP4 expression. HPV status was assessed by in situ hybridization (ISH) with a high-risk HPV wide-spectrum probe and HPV 16 and 18 type-specific probes. All tumors (13/13) demonstrated patchy p16 positivity, with <50% of tumor cells expressing p16 in all cases p16 and L1 immunohistochemistry can be helpful for estimating the biologic potentiality of low-grade squamous cervical lesions. Particularly in cases in which the grade of the lesion is morphologically difficult to assess, the p16/L1 expression pattern could be useful for planning the clinical management of these women
p16 is a cyclin-dependent kinase-4 inhibitor that is expressed in a limited range of normal tissues and tumors. In recent years, immunohistochemistry with p16 antibodies has been used as a diagnostic aid in various scenarios in gynecologic pathology. Diffuse (as opposed to focal) positivity with p16 Currently, HPV and p16 results are complete for 54/60 patients. 28 patients demonstrated HPV positivity (52%); HPV16 was the most common type detected in 25/28, although HPV18, HPV35, HPV51 and HPV82 were also identified. p16 positivity rate was 52.5%. Of p16-positive cases, 24/31 were HPV-positive and 3/31 HPV-negative The prevalence of HPV DNA in penile cancers ranged from 12% to 75%, and the prevalence of p16 positivity was ranging from 28% to 63%. DSS was reported in nine studies according to HPV status and in eight studies according to p16 status. Furthermore, six and five studies reported OS according to HPV and p16 status, respectively
Of the 51 included cases, p16 positivity (diffuse block staining) was identified in 2 (4%). Follow-up data were available in 34 cases, of which 2 (5.9%) developed subsequent vulvar HSIL, including 1/2 p16-positive cases and 1/32 p16-negative cases According to the 2006 American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology guidelines, positive CIN2 p16 in women over the age of 25 should be managed with excisional treatment. However, excisional treatment is associated with physical, psychological and obstetric morbidity and can have a negative impact on sexual function. In our study we sought to identify a clear management strategy.

Oropharyngeal carcinomas. Note: Like elsewhere, i.e. other anatomical sites, p16 is an imperfect surrogate marker for the presence of HPV Strong p16 positivity was determined by strong and diffuse en block staining . Weak p16 staining was anything other than strong positivity or negativity (no samples were negative for p16). KI67 expression was considered low (non- or sporadic expression of cells) or high (more than sporadic, Figure 3) The positivity of p16 expression and the Ki-67 score increased with the severity of the cervical lesion in the HR-HPV and LR-HPV groups. However, correlation between p16 score and final diagnosis was stronger in the HR-HPV group compared with the HPV-negative group. Thus, Ki-67 score is a more useful marker than p16 score in HPV-negative cases
The p16 protein (p16) is an INK4a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor that decelerates the cel l cycle by inactivating the CDK that phosphorylate retinoblastoma (Rb) protein. T he status of Rb expression strongly affects p16 expression, and p16 overexpression has been demonstr ated in cervical cancer Cervical tissue samples that are too small are not appropriate to assess for p16 positivity; the use of the p16 assay on limited samples could lead to the overdiagnosis of endocervical cancer The p16/Ki-67 positive rate in the HPV-positive women was 78.9%, significantly higher than 9.4% in the HPV-negative patients . The association of p16/Ki-67 positivity with HPV16 and/or 18 infections was 2-4 fold stronger compared to the cases infected with other HR-HPV types [37, 38]. The positivity of p16/Ki-67 dual-staining also strongly. 'scattered patterns' or 'focal expression' of p16 pos-itive cells in tubal or tubo-endometrial tissue of the cervix [6,20,27,29,34,46]. They describe a pattern which is not seen in normal tissue, and is different from p16 immunohistochemically negative tissue and diffuse positivity, as is seen in high-risk HPV positiv
Expression of p16 was associated with HPV DNA positivity. However, 20% of HPV DNA-positive tumors were negative for p16, with most of these tumors manifesting DNA methylation at the p16 gene promoter. Radiation or cisplatin sensitivity did not differ between OPSCC cell lines positive or negative for HPV DNA A p16 és a HPV diagnosztika eszközeit értékeltük, és a p16 kvantitatív túltermelését a HPV-pozitív és -negatív OP-SCC-kben a karcinóma sejtek immunhisztokémiai festésének módjával.

Patients with p16-positive tumors treated with RT+EGFR inhibitors had significantly better OS and DFS than those treated with RT+CT (p = 0.01 for both comparisons by the two-sided log-rank test). Panels C and D show OS and DFS, respectively, for p16-negative patients according to the treatment received Immunohistochemistry is used to measure the p16 protein, which is upregulated in HPV-infected cells (its overexpression is caused by the viral E7 protein) and is the clinically used marker for HPV positivity in OPSCC The grades of p16 positivity and HPV E4 positivity by worst SIL/CIN grade on the worst histological lesion found on colposcopy‐directed biopsy are shown in Table Table2. 2. p16 grade increased with the severity of the lesion, with 85 of 90 (94.4%) no CIN biopsies showing no or patchy p16 staining and all HSIL/CIN3 lesions showing p16 in at.
Cell cycle inhibitor and tumor suppressor gene p16 / MTS-1 has been reported to be altered in a variety of human tumors. The purpose of the study was to evaluate primary pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas for potentially inactivating p16 alterations. We investigated the status of p16 gene by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), nonradioisotopic single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP), DNA. involvement and p16 positivity was seen. Sixty-three% of p16 positive patients showed N2/N3 tumors, whereas this was only 54% in the p16 negative group (Table 1). These results are in concordance with other studies, showing that HPV positive HNSCC patients have higher N and lower T stages [5, 6, 10, 16] Abstract.

Publication details. HPV, protein p16 and squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity. Authors Strong immunohistochemical p16 positivity (meeting the criterion of >70% nuclear and cytoplasmic staining) was present in 29 of 35 cases of periocular SC (82.9%). The selected 18 p16-positive cases tested were negative for HR-HPV using mRNA ISH. PCR yielded unequivocal results with adequate DNA isolated in 24 cases, 23 of which were negative. the p16 negative post-hoc subgroup analyses). Therefore, the result of the post-hoc analyses based on the p16 tumour status might be a result of Simpson's paradox, with slower disease progression as a plausible confounder. For this reason, medically interesting, data-derived group eﬀ ects should be reported only as post-hoc analyse Immunohistochemistry showed expression of p16 protein in 26 (86.6%) colorectal tumors whereas complete loss of expression was seen in 4 (13.3%) and reduced expression was observed in 12 (40%) tumors. In the adjoining mucosa, expression of p16 was in 11 (36.6%) whereas no clear positivity for p16 protein was seen in normal tissue
Of these, 47 (68.1%) were strongly and diffusely positive for p16 expression by immunohistochemical analysis, signifying human papillomavirus positivity. Patients with p16-positive and p16-negative tumors (hereinafter, p16+ and p16−, respectively) had similarly sized primary tumors on presentation, but p16+ primary tumors were associated with. On multivariable analysis adjusted for age and stage, p16 positivity was significantly associated with better PFS (HR 0.4, 95% CI 0.2-0.9) and lower rates of in-field relapse (HR 0.2, 95% CI 0.06-0.6).
