To the authors' knowledge, the current study is the first to provide clinical evidence that aberrant expression of DF3/MUC1 is an independent prognostic factor indicating poor prognosis in patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). DF3/MUC1 is a risk factor for predicting subsequent lymph node metastasis in patients with OSCC and therefore can influence decisions regarding the need for elective neck dissection.
