Objective: To observe the expression of hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) in bladder urothelial carcinoma (BUC) and the relationship between it with the metastasis of BUC.

Methods: Expression of HIF-1α was detected by SP immunohistochemistry in BUC, to find the relationship of HIF-1α with the clinical pathological characteristics and lymph node metastasis of BUC patients

Results: The positive expression rate of HIF-1α was 75.6% in 90 cases with BUC (68/90), the positive expression rate in 30 cases of normal bladder tissue cells is 6.7% (2/30), compare the two groups, there was a significant difference between their expression (P<0.01). In different pathological grading and clinical staging, and also in lymph node metastasis, its expressive discrepancy was statistically significant (P<0.05)

Conclusions: The HIF-1 α protein of BUC patients with abnormal high expression is closely related to the cancer growth, suggesting that the protein can be used as an important molecular biological behavior and prognosis judgement of BUC cell markers, also has some clinical reference value in the treatment of postoperative follow-up guidance.

Keywords: Bladder tumor; hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1); immunohistochemistry
