Abstract

BackgroundLaryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), being an aggressive malignancy, is one of the most commonly diagnosed malignant types of head and neck SCC worldwide. The recent studies suggested that B-crystallin might play an important role in tumorigenesis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the B-crystallin expression level in metastatic and nonmetastatic laryngeal SCC tissues and to determine its prognostic significance.
