Adhesion molecules: contribution to formation of dysplastic phenotype

Interrelation between the plasma levels of selectins (E, L, P), intercellular (ICAM-1), platelet-endothelial (PECAM-1), and vascular (VCAM-1) cell adhesion molecules and peculiar features of phenotype was determined in 102 patients (79 men and 23 women, aged 21.9±4.4 years) with signs of connective tissue dysplasia
