A novel sialyl LeX expression score as a potential prognostic tool in colorectal cancer
World Journal of Surgical Oncology, 05/25/2012
Schiffmann L et al. – The results demonstrate a strong correlation between high sialyl LeX–expression in colorectal carcinomas and cancer–related survival. The highly standardized and easy–to–use staining score is suitable for routine use and hence it could be recommended to evaluate sialyl LeX–expression as part of the standard histopathological analysis of colorectal carcinomas and to validate the score prospectively based on a larger population.
