FoxP1 has been reported to be expressed in several types of human malignant tumors, and has been associated with metastasis and patient prognosis. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and immunohistochemical analysis with tissue microarray were used to characterize the expression of FoxP1 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It was revealed that the expression of FoxP1 messenger RNA (mRNA) and protein was significantly higher in NSCLC tissue than in corresponding peritumoral tissue (P = .013 and P < .001, respectively). The expression of FoxP1 protein in NSCLC was related to gender, histologic type, and 5-year survival rate (all P < .05). Finally, we evaluated the prognostic significance of the expression of FoxP1 in a group of patients. Kaplan-Meier survival and Cox regression analyses showed that low expression of FoxP1 (P < .001) and later stage grouping by TNM (P = .022) were independent factors predicting poor prognosis for NSCLC.
