Methods In this study the prognostic impact of AR expression was investigated using immunohistochemistry in tissue microarrays from 154 incident cases of epithelial ovarian cancer EOC in the prospective population-based cohorts Malmo Diet and Cancer Study and Malmo Preventive Project. A subset of corresponding fallopian tubes n 36 with no histopathological evidence of disease was also analysed. Results While abundantly expressed in the majority of fallopian tubes with more than 75 positive nuclei in 16 36 44 cases AR was absent in 108 154 70 of EOC cases. AR expression was not related to prognosis in the entire cohort but in the serous subtype n 90 AR positivity 10 positive nuclei was associated with a prolonged disease specific survival in univariate HR 95 CI p and multivariate HR 95 CI p analysis adjusted for age grade and clinical stage. Conclusions AR expression is considerably reduced in EOC as compared to fallopian tubes and in EOC of the serous subtype high AR expression is a favourable prognostic factor. These results indicate that assessment of AR expression might be of value for treatment stratification of EOC patients with serous ovarian carcinoma. Background Epithelial ovarian carcinoma EOC is the second most common and the most lethal malignancy of the female reproductive tract 1 . Etiological factors .
