Metastasis is responsible for most deaths due to malignant melanoma. The clinical significance of micrometastases in the lymph is a hotly debated topic, but an improved understanding of the lymphatic spread of cancer remains important for improving cancer survival. Cellular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a newly emerging field of imaging research that(More)
For many types of human cancer, the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) correlates with enhanced tumor-associated lymphatic vessel density, metastasis formation and poor prognosis. In experimental animals, VEGF-C produced by primary tumors can induce lymphangiogenesis within and/or at the periphery of the tumor, and promotes(More)
