Expression of Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule-1 (VCAM-1) in Invasive Ductal Carcinoma of the Breast
Background and Aim: VCAM-1 (CD106) expressed mainly on activated endothelial cells in response to pro-inflammatory cytokines. Recent evidences suggest that it is closely correlated with tumor formation, angiogenesis and cancer progression. The aim of the current study was to evaluate expression status of VCAM-1 in mammary invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), and to correlate its expression with some known clinicopathological data. ...
