Pituitary adenomas are benign neoplasms that display invasive behavior—a characteristic traditionally associated with malignancy—through an ill-defined mechanism. The role of angiogenesis-related molecules in this pathological condition remains perplexing. Our purpose is to assess the impact of endocan (endothelial cell specific molecule-1, ESM-1), CD34 and CD105 on pituitary adenoma invasion. In this study, immunohistochemical analyses for endocan, CD34 and CD105 were performed on paraffin… CONTINUE READING
