Abstract

Background. This article sought to investigate the existence of parameters useful for predicting lymph node metastases in cases of surgically resected oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs). Methods. Fifty-eight cases were studied for E-cadherin and the truncated dominant-negative isoform of p63 (ΔNp63) with immunohistochemistry. In addition, the p63 gene expression profile was evaluated by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RTPCR) to disclose the presence of the truncated variant ΔNp73L. Results. E-cadherin expression was the most powerful parameter related to the presence of lymph node metastases at presentation. Twenty-four of 38 (63%) cases showing low E-cadherin expression had lymph node metastases at presentation compared with 5 of 20 (25%) (p
