Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the expression of epithelial membrane protein-2 (EMP2) and its clinicopathological associations in patients with gallbladder carcinoma (GBC). A retrospective population-based cohort study was performed based on a biobank from 1986 to 2005. Biopsies of 164 GBC patients without initial distant metastasis were collected during surgical intervention. Immunoexpressions of EMP2 and Ki-67 were analyzed and the outcomes were correlated with clinicopathological features and patient survival. Results indicated that loss of EMP2 expression (50%) was correlated with female patients ( p=0.037), advanced primary tumor ( p
