BACKGROUND Secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) is a matricellular glycoprotein that has been implicated in tumor-stroma interactions in pancreatic cancer. Here we evaluated the expression of SPARC during the progression of pancreatic cancer and its correlation with survival following curative intent surgery. METHODS The expression profile of SPARC was investigated in normal pancreas, invasive adenocarcinoma, and lymph node metastasis by immunohistochemistry. Kaplan-Meier and… CONTINUE READING
