Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a salivary malignant tumor with poor long-term prognosis, that is known to have predilection for invasion of the adjacent stroma and neural tissues. This carcinoma has shown a high incidence of recurrence and distal metastasis. Invasive carcinomas have been associated with the distributions of extracellular matrices (ECM). Cell proliferation as a marker of tumor growth has been related to poor prognosis in oral carcinomas. Immunohistochemical analysis of 15… CONTINUE READING
