Methods: We studied 48 patients with SCLC who underwent surgery from 2008 to 2014. Galectin-9 expression was assessed by immunohistochemistry on tissue and plot survival curves by the Kaplan-Meier curve. Prognostic analysis was conducted via integrating all of the independent indicators into a multivariate Cox analysis for overall survival (OS). Furthermore, we evaluate whether SCLC patients with high or low galectin-9 expression might benefit from chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
Results: High galectin-9 expression was significantly correlated with high levels of neuron specific enolase (NSE) expression (P=0.04). We found that galectin-9 (P},
