In patients with adenocarcinoma without a mucinous component, the mean EpCAM expression equalled 32.2%, while patients with adenocarcinoma with a mucinous component had the lower EpCAM expression (15.8%) The higher expression of this protein was found in the intestinal type of cancer (33.4%) according to the Lauren classification (p=0.037).

BerEP4 is a monoclonal antibody which can detect the presence of EpCAM antigen found on BCC cells.
The expression of AFP and EpCAM was evaluated and considered to be binary, considering a positive marking when more than 10% of the tumor cells expressed the markers in a moderate or strong form.
The rs13388259 SNP is an intergenic polymorphism located on the short arm of Chromosome 2 (Ch2:47,343,700) between the BCYRN1 and EPCAM genes.

It was recently shown that epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) was upregulated via active DNA demethylation catalysed by EZH2 and Tet2 in conjunction with nuclear factor kappa B (NF-K[beta]) and RelA [121].
By targeting EpCAM with the aptamer as well as with a siRNA of EpCAM, the systemically delivered chimera resulted in the regression of tumor xenografts derived from MCF-7.
