Abstract

Objective: Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common cancer in worldwide with an increasing incidence rate in recent years. LOXL4 is expressed in several tissues, and its expression has been shown to display a significant correlation with local lymph node metastasis. In this study, we aimed to explore the LOXL4 expression level in metastatic and non-metastatic LSCC tissues and to determine its prognostic significance.
