Carbohydrate antigens and E-selectin play important roles in the invasion and metastasis of cancers. We examined the expression of these antigens and their ligand protein, E-selectin, in urothelial carcinomas to evaluate whether their staining is correlated with the grade and stage of cancer. We studied the expression of carbohydrate antigens (type 1 and type 2 blood-group antigens) and E-selectin in urothelial carcinomas of the renal pelvis, ureter, and urinary bladder in 52 patients by… CONTINUE READING
