Microvessels were counted in 41 primary oral squamous cell carcinomas using JC70 antibody to PECAM (CD31).

Tumour microvessel counts correlated with lymph node metastasis (p < 0.001). This association was independent of tumour size, velocity and type of histological differentiation and when all… CONTINUE READING
