Interleukin (IL)-17 is the signature cytokine of T helper 17 cells. The role of IL-17 in the tumor microenvironment is still controversial. Few studies describing IL-17 expression in ovarian cancer have been reported. We have therefore analyzed the in situ tumor expression of IL-17 in advanced ovarian cancer and the possible correlation of IL-17 expression with tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) and with survival in advanced ovarian cancer. Clinical data of 104 patients with stage III–IV… CONTINUE READING
