abstract

  • CXCR4 is expressed in chondrosarcomas. CXCR4 expression levels were higher in high-grade chondrosarcoma cells than in low-grade specimens. A larger number of cases will be required to confirm these results and expand the observation, but preliminary data would argue for CXCR4 immunohistochemistry as a potential marker for biologic aggressiveness in chondrosarcoma of bone.
