Table 10 summary of maspin expression

From: Role of maspin in cancer

Cancer Tumor progression normal to cancer Positive cytoplasm or positive nucleus Prognosis
Breast cancer Normal tissue: positive maspin Positive nucleus = better prognosis Positive maspin = better/worse prognosis depending of localization and of epigenetic modification
Cancer tissue +/−
Cancer metastasis = negative maspin
Prostate cancer Normal tissue: Positive nucleus increased in invasive cancer Positive maspin = better prognosis
Negative maspin
HGPI: positive maspin
Invasive cancer = negative maspin
Bladder cancer Normal tissue: Positive nucleus = better prognosis Positive maspin = better prognosis
Positive maspin
Cancer tissue:
Negative maspin (T2 → T4 positive?)
Lung cancer Normal tissue: positive maspin Positive nucleus = better prognosis vs nuclear and positive cytoplasm Positive maspin = better prognosis
Lung cancer = less positive maspin
Ovarian cancer Normal tissue: Negative maspin Positive nucleus (rare) = better prognosis Positive maspin = better/worse prognosis depending of localization and of epigenetic modification
Early stage
Ovarian cancer = positive maspin
Metastic cancer = less positive
Colorectal cancer Normal tissue: negative maspin Positive nucleus = worse prognosis Positive maspin = better prognosis, positive response to 5FU therapy
Dysplasia and cancer = positive maspin
Positive cytoplasm better prognosis
Gastric cancer Normal tissue: positive maspin Positive nucleus and positive cytoplasm = better prognosis vs only positive cytoplasm Positive maspin = better prognosis
Cancer tissue: negative maspin
Pancreatic cancer Normal tissue: negative maspin   Positive maspin = worse prognosis
Pan In1, Pan In2 = negative maspin
Pan In3 and cancer invasive tissue = positive maspin
Gallbladder cancer Normal tissue: dysplasia = negative maspin intestinal metastasia and cancer = positive maspin   
Head and neck cancer   Positive nucleus = better prognosis Positive maspin = better prognosis
Thyroid cancer Normal tissue adenomas and follicular carcinoma = negative maspin/+ papillary carcinoma = positive maspin   Positive maspin = better prognosis
Anaplastic and poorly differentiated = negative maspin
Melanoma malignant Normal tissue: positive maspin Positive nucleus = better prognosis Positive maspin = better prognosis
Melanoma = positive maspin
  Metastatic melanoma = negative maspin
