Lef-1 mRNA levels were statistically elevated in cases of ovarian, fallopian tube or peritoneal cancer when compared to non-cancerous controls. Among cancer cases, levels of Lef-1 were statistically different between stage and histology. Lef-1 overexpression may be predictive of poor overall survival. These findings suggest that Lef-1 overexpression may contribute to ovarian, fallopian tube and peritoneal carcinogenesis, and that further investigation is warranted.
