In contrast to gastrointestinal cancer, where a correlation between the expression of different mucin-associated core antigens with clinico-pathological parameters and survival probability, has been established, little is known about their importance in esophageal cancer. Therefore, we characterized esophageal squamous cell carcinomas from 84 patients immunohistochemically by applying monoclonal antibodies (mabs) directed against the Thomsen-Friedenreich (TF) antigen MUC1-bound TF antigen and… CONTINUE READING
