Expression of human intercellular adhesion molecules in middle ear cholesteatoma.


INTRODUCTION Cell adhesion molecules are cell surface proteins that allow specific cell-cell interactions among leukocytes, as well as between leukocytes and other cells. Because middle ear cholesteatoma is characterized by the presence of leukocyte infiltrates, the presence of the two molecule types of intercellular adhesion molecules (ICAM-1 and ICAM-2… (More)
