Abstract

In our series of 52 MPM patients, epithelial histology, PS, NLR and WT1 expression are significant prognostic factors for survival. We concluded that WT1, but not calretinin, is a useful prognostic factor in MPM. The role of WT1 assessment is worth of prospective validation in future studies on MPM.
