Purpose: Mesothelin is a cell surface glycoprotein that is overexpressed in various malignancies. Recent studies have revealed that mesothelin plays an oncogenic role in tumor growth and drug resistance through the Wnt/NF-kappa B/PI3K/Akt signaling pathways. Herein, the expression of mesothelin in HER2-positive and triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) has been correlated with prognosis.
