Recent studies have identified that mucin antigens and Lewis X (Lex)-related antigens behave like oncodevelopmental tumor-associated antigens in several human adenocarcinomas. However, the expression of these antigens in pharyngeal and laryngeal squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and in the precursor lesion is not fully elucidated yet. In the present study, the expression of mucin core protein antigens associated with the MUC1 gene product (DF3 antigen, mammary-type apomucin) and the MUC2 gene… CONTINUE READING
