While the effects of single growth factors on endothelial cells (ECs) have been extensively studied, the importance of induction of growth factors such as PDGF-BB (platelet derived growth factor) in ECs and its impact on tumor cell functions are only partly understood. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were cultured under serum-free conditions(More)
To evaluate characteristics and prognostic impact of different structure types of intratumoural blood vessels, tissue samples of 72 patients with primary stages I and II non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were analysed. Performing immunohistochemistry, 45 of 56 analysed tumours (80%) demonstrated an obvious alveolar vascular pattern with tight coverage with(More)
Activation of the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-receptors is critically involved into various stromal cell functions including recruitment of stromal cells and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) induction in tumor and perivascular cells. To evaluate the effects of combined PDGFRalpha and -beta inhibition in a non-small cell lung cancer model,(More)
