Abstract

CD44s is an adhesion molecule which is a member of the cell adhesion molecules family hyaladherins. CD44s has some effects including tumor-endothel interaction, cell motility and migration, cell adhesion and tumor invasion, tumor progression, and metastasing. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the CD44s expression and some other prognostic factors in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
