Osteopontin overexpression predicts poor prognosis of upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Studies indicate overexpression of osteopontin (OPN) promotes carcinogenesis, progression and metastasis of multiple human malignancies. However, the function of OPN in urothelial carcinoma (UC) of the upper urinary tract has not been investigated. This study evaluates the clinical significance of OPN expression in upper urinary tract UC… (More)
