CONCLUSION p53 protein and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) were not ideal prognostic indicators in advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Further investigation in searching for other potential biomarkers is needed to enhance the prediction of treatment outcome. OBJECTIVE To assess the prognostic significance of p53 protein and PCNA expression in patients with advanced NPC. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study included 46 patients with advanced NPC who had received treatment and… CONTINUE READING
