Conclusion: Oral invasive carcinoma has more angiogenic activity in comparison with pre-cancerous lesions and normal mucosa. Given the high expression of CD105 positive vessels in malignant lesions, we can argue that determination of mean vessel density (MVD) by application of the CD105 marker could be a useful parameter to differentiate cancerous from pre-cancerous lesions.
