Abstract :

Human Runt-associated transcription factor 3 (RUNX3) plays an important role in the development and progression of endometrial cancer (EC). However, the clinical and pathological significance of RUNX3 in EC needs to be further studied. In order to clarify the clinical and pathological significance of RUNX3, a systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted in EC patients. Keywords RUNX3, endometrial cancer, and uterine cancer were searched in Cochrane Library, Web of Knowledge, PubMed, CBM, MEDLINE, and Chinese CNKI database for data up to Dec 31, 2018. References, abstracts, and meeting proceedings were manually searched in supplementary. Outcomes were various clinical and pathological features. The two reviewers performed the literature searching, data extracting, and method assessing independently. Meta-analysis was performed by RevMan5.3.0. A total of 563 EC patients were enrolled from eight studies. Meta-analysis results showed that the expression of RUNX3 has significant differences in these comparisons: lymph node (LN) metastasis vs. non-LN metastasis (P=0.26), EC tissues vs. normal tissues (P
