BACKGROUND Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a pleotropic growth factor that regulates cell proliferation, migration, survival, tumor angiogenesis, and tumor cell invasion and metastasis. Its diverse biological effects are mediated through its interaction with its receptor, c-met protein. METHODS In this study, we examined the expression of HGF and c-met protein in 93 specimens of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), 10 specimens of oral epithelial dysplasia (OED), 14 specimens of oral… CONTINUE READING
