This article is from Korean Journal of Pathology, volume 48.AbstractBackground: Epithelial mesenchymal transition EMT has an important role in invasion and metastasis of tumor cells. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the roles of EMT-associated proteins on progression and metastasis as a prognostic-predictive factor in curatively-resected R0 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma HNSCC. Methods: A total of 118 patients who received curative surgery for HNSCC at Inha University Hospital between January 1996 and December 2011 were included. We used protein immunohistochemistry to evaluate the expression of E-cadherin, vimentin, and EZH2 on tissue microarrays. Also, we reviewed all medical records and analyzed the relationship between the expression of EMT-associated proteins and prognosis. Results: The E-cadherin-negative group showed more moderate-poor differentiation of cancer cell type than the higher E-cadherin-expressing group p=.016 and high EZH2 expression was significantly correlated with nodal metastasis p=.012. Our results demonstrate a significant association between high expression of EZH2 and vimentin and presence of distant progression p=.026. However, expression of E-cadherin, vimentin, and EZH2 was not significantly associated with overall survival. Conclusions: These findings suggest that an EMT-associated protein expression profile is correlated with aggressiveness of disease and prognosis, and could be a useful marker for determination of additional treatment in curatively-resected HNSCC patients.
