Our purpose was to determine the respective prognostic significance of CD105 and CD31 immunoexpression in node negative patients with breast carcinoma, since angiogenesis induces blood borne metastases and death in carcinomas. CD105 (endoglin) has been reported as expressed by activated endothelial cells and consequently should better reflect… CONTINUE READING
