Prognostic impact of combined Ki67-p53 status in patients with hormone receptor-positive and HER2-negative breast cancer (n=142). A, Disease-free survival curves for 88 patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-negative tumors, 34 patients with Ki67 LI-high and p53-negative tumors, 10 patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-positive tumors, and 10 patients with Ki67 LI-high and p53-positive tumors. Patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-negative tumors had significantly longer disease-free survival than those with Ki67 LI-low and p53-positive tumors, those with Ki67 LI-high and p53-negative tumors, or those with Ki67 LI-high and p53-positive tumors (P < 0.0001, P < 0.0001, and P = 0.0005, respectively). B, Overall survival curves for 88 patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-negative tumors, 34 patients with Ki67 LI-high and p53-negative tumors, 10 patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-positive tumors, and 10 patients with Ki67 LI-high and p53-positive tumors. Patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-negative tumors had significantly longer disease-free survival than those with Ki67 LI-low and p53-positive tumors, those with Ki67 LI-high and p53-negative tumors, or those with Ki67 LI-high and p53-positive tumors (P = 0.0010, P = 0.011, and P < 0.0001, respectively). C, Disease-free survival curves for patients with favorable-phenotype tumors (88 patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-negative tumors) and unfavorable-phenotype tumors (54 patients with Ki67 LI-high and/or p53-positive tumors). The disease-free survival time was significantly longer in the favorable-phenotype group than in the unfavorable-phenotype group (HR, 9.3; 95% CI, 3.5–24.5; P < 0.0001). D, Overall survival curves for patients with favorable-phenotype tumors (88 patients with Ki67 LI-low and p53-negative tumors) and those with unfavorable-phenotype tumors (54 patients with Ki67 LI-high and/or p53-positive tumors). The disease-free survival was significantly longer in the favorable-phenotype group than in the unfavorable-phenotype group (HR, 8.8; 95% CI, 1.9–40.4; P = 0.0007).
