BACKGROUND MUC1 is a transmembrane mucin that plays an important role in tumor progression. Many clinical studies have suggested that the expression pattern of MUC1 core protein can be a useful prognostic marker in various malignancies, but the prognostic significance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains uncertain. We performed a study to assess clinical significance, especially prognostic impact, of MUC1 expression in NSCLC. METHODS A total of 62 patients with completely resected… CONTINUE READING
