AIM The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of tumor-associated glycoprotein 72 (TAG-72) in primary gallbladder carcinoma (PGC) with an attempt to determine the potential usefulness of it in diagnostic and prognostic applications. METHODS Tissue samples from 118 patients with PGC, 30 patients with chronic cholecystitis, and 20 normal gallbladders were stained with anti-TAG-72 antibodies for immunohistochemical analysis. Then, the clinical outcome of the patients after a… CONTINUE READING
