Expression of CD105 (Endoglin) in Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Correlation with Intrahepatic Metastasis: Analysis Using Tissue Microarrays and Comparison with Other Endothelial Marker

Abstract

Neovascularization provides the route for nutrient supply to the tumor and the conduit for tumor cells to be shed into the circulation. CD31 is a pan-endothelial cell marker and CD105 is an active endothelial cell marker, but whether there is a link between CD105 expression and metastasis in Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) still remains unclear. A tissue… (More)
