Background  Heat-shock protein gp96 plays an important role in antitumor immunoreactions. Gp96 has a close relationship with antitumor immunity. This study evaluated the correlation between gp96 expression and the prognosis in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Methods  Seventy-eight patients with primarily resected esophageal squamous cell carcinoma were enrolled onto this study, and gp96 expression was evaluated by immunohistochemical staining. The association of clinicopathological factors and patients’ survival was calculated by univariate (log rank test) and multivariate (Cox proportional hazard regression method) analyses. Results  Fifty-seven (73%) of 78 cases were gp96 positive, and 21 were negative (27%). The survival of patients with gp96-negative disease was significantly shorter (5-year survival, 22.9 months) than with gp96-positive disease (45.8 months; P = 0.049), and the multivariate analysis showed that gp96 negativity is an independent risk factor for poor survival (hazard ratio, 2.577; P = 0.040). Gp96-negative cases had more metastatic lymph nodes than did negative cases, especially in T1 cases (4.8 in gp96-negative cases vs. 0.84 in gp96-positive cases; P = 0.064) Conclusions  The downregulation of gp96 expression is closely correlated with poor survival in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
