P16 is a widely used immunohistochemical marker. It can be expressed in other neoplasms and in several normal human tissues. It can play an important role in gynecological malignancy and is a surrogate marker for HSILs (high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions). It has also been employed to facilitate accurate diagnosis of HPV-related cervical dysplasia (especially CIN2 and CIN3).
