The aim of this study was to investigate whether tumour hypoxia and/or vascular hot spots promote the development of metastatic disease. The D-12 human melanoma xenograft line was used as a tumour model. Hypoxia and vascular hot spots were detected by immunohistochemistry using pimonidazole as a hypoxia marker and anti-CD31 antibody to visualize endothelial(More)
