Aim: Increased expression of High Mobility Group Protein Box 1(HMGB1) has been reported with several
different tumor types, but the role of HMGB1 in pancreatic cancer is not fully understood. The aim of this study is to
detect the expression of HMGB1 and evaluate the role of HMGB1 in pancreatic cancer.
Methods: The expression level of HMGB1 in pancreatic cancer cell line PANC-1 was detected by western blot
analysis and reverse transcription PCR. Furthermore, primary tumors tissues of 35 patients with resected pancreatic
cancer(T2-4 N0-2 M0-1) were stained immune histochemically using the polyclonal anti-HMGB1 antibody. The
prognostic relevance of HMGB1 expression was evaluated by univariate Kaplan-Meier among 35 patients.
Results: HMGB1 is over expressed in pancreatic cancer.HMGB1 overexpression was significantly associated
with clinical stage (p<0.05). Univariate Cox regression showed that the survival time was significantly different
between groups with high and low expression of HMGB1, indicating that high level of HMGB1correlated with a
shorter survival time (P<0.05; HR, 2.53; 95%CI, 1.14-5.64).
Conclusions: HMGB1 might promote pancreatic cancer progression and HMGB1 expression was an
independent prognostic indicator for patients’ survival
