09/01/1994 - "Three angiomatoid carcinomas also expressed or labeled with one or more vascular markers: CD34 (one of four), CD31 (two of four), Ulex europaeus I lectin (one of four), factor VIII-related antigen (one of four). "
03/01/1986 - "Comparison of Ulex europaeus I lectin binding and factor VIII-related antigen as markers of vascular endothelium in follicular carcinoma of the thyroid."
10/01/1997 - "We have studied vessels in 50 cases of normal cervix, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN I, II, III), and invasive carcinoma by two markers, Von-Willebrand factor (VWF) and ulex europaeus lectin I. With both markers, an increase in microvessel counts parallel to neoplastic progression was seen, with highest counts observed in CIN III. Average counts for ulex lectin and VWF increased from approximately 6 vessels per field in normal cervices to 15 vessels per field in CIN III. For each diagnostic group, comparable numbers of vessels were stained by both markers, with a slight preponderance of VWF in invasive carcinomas and of ulex lectin in noninvasive lesions. "
08/01/1985 - "Histopathologic and histochemical changes in experimental carcinomas following cryotreatment were observed to detect alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and UEA-1 lectin binding. "
06/01/2001 - "Hematoxylin-eosin, Masson's trichrome, and immunohistochemical stainings for Ulex europaeus I lectin binding, CD31, and type IV collagen were done to differentiate lymphatic and blood vessels and to demonstrate basement membranes in vascular walls and around carcinoma cell nests was observed.
