Bottom Line: Patients with mediastinal lymph node metastasis (N2) in squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) of the lung have poor prognosis after surgical resection of the primary tumor.In the primary tumors, the expressions of all the examined molecules were not related to recurrence.Our study indicated that the immunophenotypes of both cancer cells and CAFs in metastatic lymph node tumors, but not primary tumors, provide useful information for predicting the recurrence of pathological N2 lung SqCC.

Kaplan–Meier recurrence-free survival (RFS) curve for patients with resected pathological N2 squamous cell carcinoma of the lung according to immunohistochemical staining. (a) Kaplan–Meier RFS curve according to clusterin expression of cancer cells in metastatic lymph node tumors. (b) Kaplan–Meier RFS curve according to ZEB2 expression of cancer cells in metastatic lymph node tumors. (c) Kaplan–Meier RFS curve according to podoplanin expression of cancer-associated fibroblasts in metastatic lymph node tumors.

fig03: Kaplan–Meier recurrence-free survival (RFS) curve for patients with resected pathological N2 squamous cell carcinoma of the lung according to immunohistochemical staining. (a) Kaplan–Meier RFS curve according to clusterin expression of cancer cells in metastatic lymph node tumors. (b) Kaplan–Meier RFS curve according to ZEB2 expression of cancer cells in metastatic lymph node tumors. (c) Kaplan–Meier RFS curve according to podoplanin expression of cancer-associated fibroblasts in metastatic lymph node tumors.

Mentions: We carried out univariate analyses in the metastatic lymph node tumors (Table 4). A high clusterin expression level in cancer cells was observed in 24 cases (38%) (Fig. 2a,b). The 3-year RFS rate of cases with a high clusterin expression level was 28.6%, whereas that of cases with a low clusterin expression level was 45.2%. The difference between the two groups was significant (P = 0.04; Fig. 3a).
