Strong claudin 5 expression is a poor prognostic sign in pancreatic adenocarcinoma

Abstract

We investigated the expression of claudin 5 in 88 ductal adenocarcinomas of the pancreas. The results were correlated with patient prognosis, with claudin 5 expression in blood vessels, with the expression level of bcl2 and bax and with apoptosis.
