1. Proliferation Factors
1) S-phase cell labelling index
(1) S-phase cell labelling index has been proved to relate with the degree of submucosal invasion.
(2) S-phase cell labelling index can be a prognostic factor.
2) EGF-R and FGF
(1) Expression of EGF-R and FGF was observed in more than 90% of hypopharyngeal carcinoma. The highest in all head and and neck carcinomas.
3) Product protein of mutant p53 gene
(1) In 42% of hypopharyngeal carcinomas, mutant p53 gene product protein was observed.
2. Factors related to neck metastasis
1) Type 4 collagen
(1) Metastasis to neck nodes was observed in cases with negative expression of type 4 collagen in perineastal membrane.
(2) Several metalloproteinases may have relationship with expression of type 4 collagen.
(3) Most hypopharyngeal carcinomas did not show positive expression of type 4 collagen in perinestal membrane.
