Endoglin (CD105) and vascular endothelial growth factor as prognostic markers in esophageal adenocarcinoma.
Endoglin (CD105), a member of transforming growth factor beta1 receptor complex, has been shown to be a more useful marker to identify tumor angiogenesis than panendothelial markers such as CD31. WeExpand
