Colorectal tumorigenesis evolves through a series of molecular genetic changes, providing putative markers for tumour progression. This study investigated the relation between expression of the tumour suppressor gene p53 and splice variants v5 and v6 of the cell adhesion molecule CD44 by immunohistochemistry on tissue samples of early adenomas (n=12), late adenomas (n=12), Dukes's A and B carcinomas (n=21), and Dukes's C and D carcinomas (n=22) and compared these results with expression of these proteins in normal colonic mucosa (n= 17). A statistically significant trend of increasing expression was seen for both p53 (p
