L1 is overexpressed in ovarian and uterine carcinomas and is associated with short survival. L1 can serve as a new marker for prediction of clinical outcome and could be helpful to identify patients with uterine tumours who are at high risk for recurrent disease. L1 expression and cleavage could promote dissemination of tumours by facilitating cell migration.
