Abstract
OBJECTIVE
Immunohistochemistry was performed on normal and cervical cancer tissues to determine the differential expression patterns of clusterin. METHODS: Fifteen normal cervical tissues and thirty-two primary cervical cancer tissues were used. Clusterin expression was determined with immunohistochemical staining and quantified with scoring system. RESULTS: The normal cervical tissues expressed low levels of clusterin expression and their mean score was 1.35. On the contrary cervical cancer tissues showed high levels of clusterin expression with mean score, 4.08. And the difference of expression was statistically significant (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: These data suggest that clusterin expression is higher in cervical cancer tissues than normal cervical tissues.
Key Words: Clusterin, Cervical cancer
