The frequency of p53 and Bcl-2 protein expression in 100 newly diagnosed and 10 relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients was analyzed by immunocytochemistry (ICC). The Kaplan-Meier method was used for univariate and multivariate statistical analysis to assess the relationship between p53, Bcl-2 and clinico-hematologic feature with respect to overall survival (OS) using SPSS statistical software. No statistical significance was found in univariate analysis (P=0.60). However, when the subgroups of patients (+1, +2, +3 and +4) were compared, expression of p53 and Bcl-2 protein (1-10%, 11- 30%, 31-50% and >50%) was statistically significant (P
