The objective of this study was to obtain more accurate quantitation of HSPB1 expression in HNSCC using a novel quantitative protein expression analysis system based on multispectral imaging. The study was a retrospective laboratory study of HNSCC patients treated at tertiary care academic medical center. Archival tissue samples from forty seven patients with HNSCC were subjected to immunohistochemistry using primary antibody to HSPB1. Seven of the patients had early stage cancers (TNM stage I/II) and forty patients had advanced stage cancers (TNM stage III/IV). HSPB1 expression was increased in advanced stage versus early stage cancers. Further investigation of HSPB1 as a potential biomarker for HNSCC is warranted.
