Abstract

Background and Objectives: Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a highly aggressive cancer with high metastatic potential and therefore, a high mortality rate. Ezrin, radixin, moesin, and E-cadherin are transmembrane glycoproteins that regulate cell motility, migration, and metastasis. In this study, we investigated the relationship of ezrin, moesin, and E-cadherin expression with the clinicopathological features of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
