The incidence and mortality of cholangiocarcinoma are increasing despite improvements in the diagnostic method. Since the sensitivity of brushing cytology for cholangiocarcinoma is not satisfactory, a novel diagnostic marker needs to be established. A recent report has suggested upregulation of the calcium-binding protein S100P in cholangiocarcinoma. The expression status of S100P in normal bile duct and cholangiocarcinoma tissues was assessed by immunohistochemistry. The expression levels of… CONTINUE READING
