This study was conducted to elucidate the prognostic significance of BAF57 in patients with endometrial carcinoma. We investigated the relationship between the immunohistochemical expression of BAF57 and various clinicopathological variables in 111 endometrial carcinomas. Both univariate and multivariate regression analyses were performed. The correlations between the BAF57 expression and the other variables including estrogen receptor (ER) and p53 were examined. The high nuclear BAF57 expression was detected in 42 (37.8%) endometrial carcinomas, and 69 (62.2%) endometrial carcinomas were defined as having low nuclear BAF57 expression. The BAF57 expression was significantly associated with the surgical stage, grade of the tumor, myometrial invasion, lympho-vascular space invasion (LVSI) and lymph node metastasis. The 10-year overall survival rates of patients with low and high BAF57 expression were 96.9% and 58.2%, respectively (p<0.001). A multivariate analysis identified BAF57 expression as an independent prognostic factor. The BAF57 expression was significantly correlated with p53 expression (r=0.312, P=0.001), but was not correlated with ER expression (r= -0.141, P=0.14). The high BAF57 expression is an independent marker of poor prognosis of the patients in endometrial carcinomas. The inhibition of BAF57 activity may be one of the candidates for endometrial cancer therapy, especially therapy for aggressive tumors showing overexpression of p53.
