Focal S100A4 protein expression is an independent predictor of development of metastatic disease in cystectomized bladder cancer patients.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The prognosis of patients with apparently localized, operable, muscle-invasive bladder cancer depends to a large extent on the presence or absence of subclinical, microscopic distant metastases at the time of surgery. Expression of the S100A4 protein has been shown to correlate with the risk of metastasis in both animal tumour-model systems and… (More)
