CD44v3 levels in primary cutaneous melanoma are predictive of prognosis: assessment by the use of tissue microarray.

Abstract:

Despite the use of sentinel node biopsy techniques, the search continues for other strategies to improve the accuracy of estimating prognosis in melanoma patients. Various biomarkers have previously been studied for use in this role, but none has yet achieved acceptance in routine practice. We have applied the novel technology of tissue microarray for the high throughput screening of a cohort of 120 primary cutaneous melanoma specimens for expression of the transmembrane glycoprotein CD44, sp...
