Expressions of HPV 16-E6 in esophageal carcinoma and it's clinical significance
Keywords:Esophageal carcinoma, HPV 16-E6, Immunohistochemistry
Aim: To explore the association between HPV16-E6 protein and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
Materials and Methods: SP immunohistochemical method was used to examine the expression of HPV 16-E6 in 50 cases of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, 10 cases of normal esophageal squamous cell and 10 cases of adjacent tissue.
Results: The expressions of HPV 16-E6 was significantly higher in esophageal carcinoma than in normal esophageal mucosa and in adjacent tissue. The expressions of HPV 16-E6 had correlation with invasive depth (P<0.05), but not with patient age, lymph node metastasis, tumor size (P>0.05).
Conclusion: HPV 16-E6 can promote the growth and metastasis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and can be a prognostic factor of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
