Abstract  Objective: To investigate the serum levels of sCD44v6 and sE-cadherin (sE-cad) in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
Methods: The serum samples were collected from 65 cases of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma,32 cases of erosive esophagitis and 35 healthy subjects.Serum sCD44v6 and sE-cad levels were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
Results: The mean levels of serum sCD44v6 and sE-cad in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients were significantly higher than those of erosive esophagitis patients and normal controls (both P<0.05).There was no significant difference in serum sCD44v6 and sE-cad levels between erosive esophagitis patients normal controls (P=0.566 and P=0.708,respectively).Serum sCD44v6 and sE-cad levels of esophageal cancer patients were not correlated with their clinicopathological features.Serum sCD44v6 level is not correlated with sE-cad level in squamous cell carcinoma patients(P=0.651).
Conclusion: Serum sCD44v6 and sE-cad might be a potential marker for screening of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

结果:血清sCD44v6在食管鳞癌组表达水平明显高于正常食管组及糜烂性食管炎组(P<0.05),正常食管组与糜烂性食管炎组比较无统计学差异(P=0.566);血清sCD44v6水平与食管鳞癌临床病理特征无关。 血清sE-cad水平在食管鳞癌组明显高于正常食管组及糜烂性食管炎组(P<0.05),正常食管组与糜烂性食管炎组比较无统计学差异(P=0.708);血清sE-cad水平与食管鳞癌临床病理特征无关。 食管鳞癌患者血清中sCD44v6和sE-cad水平无显著相关性(r=-0.057,P=0.651)。
