E-cadherin expression on fine-needle aspiration biopsies in primary lung adenocarcinomas is related to tumor differentiation and invasion.
UNLABELLED E-cadherin, a cell surface molecule that mediates cell-cell adhesion in normal epithelium, has been shown in recent studies of tissue biopsy to be related to tumor differentiation andExpand

Bcl-2 expression as an apoptotic index in non small cell lung carcinomas.
To evaluate the bcl-2 protein expression in non small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC) as an index of apoptosis of these tumors, in fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNABs) of the lung, we studiedExpand
