abstract

  • The expression of survivin gradually increased from normal prostate tissue, to low-grade primary carcinoma, to high-grade primary carcinoma and was highest in lymph node metastases. Survivin expression was associated further with alteration of the TGF-beta pathway and with overall and aggressive biochemical progression after radical prostatectomy.
