Univariate and multivariate analyses revealed that nardilysin expression is an independent prognostic classifier of patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. The invasiveness of NRD1-knockdown TE1 and TE5 esophageal cancer cell lines was less than that of the negative control siRNA-transfected cell lines. These results suggest that nardilysin is involved in tumor progression, and is an independent prognostic classifier in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
