The expression and prognostic significance of hepatoma-derived growth factor in oral cancer
Oral Oncology , 02/27/2012
Lin YW et al. – Multivariate analysis indicated that the nuclear hepatoma–derived growth factor (HDGF) labeling index was an independent prognostic factor for disease–specific and local recurrence–free survival. HDGF overexpression contributes to the oncogenic processes in oral cancer cells and constitutes a novel prognostic factor for survival outcome of oral cancer patients.
