The expression of SIP1 protein in pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma tumors often indicates an advanced tumor stage, a high risk of recurrence and a poor prognosis, according to research. Based on the results, SIP1 is a potential new prognostic factor for clinical use, helping to single out patients with more aggressive tumor behavior requiring more intensive therapy and closer follow-up.
