Correlation of β-catenin, but not PIN1 and cyclin D1, overexpression with disease-free and overall survival in patients with cancer of the parotid gland.


BACKGROUND Malignant tumors of the salivary glands comprise about 3% to 5% of all head and neck carcinomas. The purpose of our study was to find possible predictive and/or prognostic markers for parotid cancer.
