Patterns of basement membrane laminin distribution in nonneoplastic and neoplastic thyroid tissue.

Abstract

Laminin, a major basement membrane component, is typically absent or partially lost around the epithelial elements of most invasive carcinomas. To evaluate the distribution of laminin in both primary and metastatic thyroid tumors, we studied 14 benign thyroid lesions (eight adenomas, two Graves' disease, two Hashimoto's thyroiditis, one adenomatous… (More)
