Overexpression of Annexin A1 Is an Independent Predictor of Longer Overall Survival in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer

Abstract : Background: Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the major gynecological cause of cancer deaths. Annexin A1 (ANXA1) protein has been implicated in the aggressiveness of several cancer types. Materials and methods: This study retrospectively assessed ANXA1 expression in epithelial cells of 156 pre-chemotherapy EOC samples and 34 normal ovarian samples from patients treated at Salah Azaiez Institute. Using immunohistochemistry, ANXA1 expression was compared in normal versus cancer samples; correlations with clinicopathological features, including overall survival, were sought. Results: Fifty-two percent of tumor samples showed epithelial ANXA1 staining versus only 26% of normal samples (Fisher's exact test, p=0.00794). Epithelial ANXA1 expression was correlated with better overall survival in both univariate and multivariate analyses. Conclusion: The possible contribution of ANXA1 overexpression to EOC outcome may be relevant to therapeutic strategies.
