Loss of p27 nuclear expression in a prognostically favorable subset of well-differentiated pancreatic endocrine neoplasms.

Decreased expression of p27 occurs in aggressive colon, breast, and prostate neoplasms; p27 loss often correlates with worsened prognosis. Paradoxical overexpression has been described in benign and malignant pancreatic endocrine neoplasms (PENs). To investigate prognostic usefulness of p27 expression in PENs, we immunolabeled 42 primary PENs, with or… CONTINUE READING
