Abstract

Objectives: Cell adhesion molecules play a major role in various pathological states. The aim of this study was to evaluate the tissue levels of selectins (E-, L-, and P-Selectins), activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM) and platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (PECAM-1) in intracranial meningiomas and compare with the levels in control tissues.
